Application of geographical information systems in modelling of military operations
The algorithm of the stochastic model of combat is given in article. Random functions describing the basic processes of combat (movement of military personnel, detection of the enemy, firing and its results, etc.) are recorded. Corresponding mathematical expressions and numerical evaluations are given. Application of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) technologies and three‐dimensional map in planning battle tactics are discussed.
