About the Edition

In this study, we describe a decision process for establishing the threshold reliabilities for components of naval major caliber ammunition. A measure of reliability performance is described which relates directly to the weapons system"s performance in a naval gunfire support environment. We use a simulation model to establish this relationship, a regression metamodel to estimate its parameters, and a simple decision process to specify component reliability thresholds which ensure that the ammunition is mission effective. We present this paper as an example of the integration of discrete event dynamic system analysis within a decision process.

Summary. MILITARY LOGISTICS. The mission of the United States Army is “to fight and win our nation’s wars by providing prompt, sustained land dominance across the full range of military operations and spectrum of conflict in support of combatant commanders.” 1 Accomplishing this mission rests on the ability of the Army to equip and move its forces to the battle and sustain.

PREFACE. This manual sets forth basic guidance for commanders and staff officers for planning and executing riverine warfare. While this manual reflects riverine warfare as conducted in the Republic of Vietnam where it was field evaluated, the principles, procedures, and techniques expressed, should be applicable to worldwide riverine environments where a riverine force.

Reducing the Major Logistics Demands. An analysis in by the Army Materiel Systems Analysis Activity indicated that, in the initial phase of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), percent of the tonnage moved to the theater was accounted for by water and percent by bulk fuel.

A railgun is a device, typically designed as a weapon, that uses electromagnetic force to launch high velocity projectiles. The projectile normally does not contain explosives, instead relying on the projectile's high speed and kinetic energy to inflict damage.

The railgun uses a pair of parallel conductors (rails), along which a sliding armature is accelerated by the electromagnetic effects. The objectives of the research and development for the HTT are to: • Provide the means to reset to an initial condition from the engaged/dead position when commanded from the control system • Provide accurate hit detection in the lethal, non-lethal, and incapacitating zones • Provide the means to add or redefine the hit detection zones.

Many of the Baltic States possess long coastlines relative to their overall size. Ammunition was cartridge seated type and only HE-ammunition seems to have been used in Finland. The Finnish military used HE-projectiles with both TNT and ammonal (ammonium nitrate based high explosive) filling, these ammunition types were probably of Russian origin (since they were included in Finnish artillery manuals from ).
