Land Combat Scenario Planning: A Multiobjective Approach


The simulation of land combat operations is a complex task. The space of possibilities is exponential and the performance criteria are usually in conflict; thus finding a sweet spot in this complex search space is a hard task. This paper focuses on the effect of population size and mutation rate on the performance of NSGA-II, as the evolutionary multiobjective optimization technique, to decide on the composition of forces using a complex land combat multi-agent scenario planning tool.
