MOVANAID: An Interactive Aid for Analysis of Movement Capabilities.
Cooper, George E.; And Others
A computer-drive interactive aid for movement analysis, called MOVANAID, has been developed to be of assistance in the performance of certain Army intelligence processing tasks in a tactical environment. It can compute fastest travel times and paths through road networks for military units of various types, as well as fastest times in which simultaneous maneuvers of certain types can be completed. Military situations in which the aid might be useful are discussed, and the manner in which users interact with the aid is described. Details about the analytic basis upon which the aid has been constructed and a discussion of the method used for computer implementation are also given. Possible extensions of the capabilities of the aid are also discussed. (Author/JVP)
