Paper Abstract

Mine Countermeasures (MCM), an element of Mine Warfare, is a critical component of the US National Defense picture. MCM operations are mandatory since it is a simple and relatively inexpensive matter for opponents to place vast quantities of land and sea mines. Representation of MCM activities in simulations can substantially accelerate and optimize material and tactical means development to address this problem. A systematic effort to model and simulate the breadth of Mine Warfare operations is described. Developing computationally tractable models for inclusion in either time stepped or event driven MCM simulations is a formidable problem. Discussion of a particular strategy for dealing with modeling fidelity issues is provided, as are the issues and challenges associated with detection, recognition and system effectiveness representation.
