In this highly anticipated second edition, Morris R. Driels clearly and comprehensively describes tools and strategies for assessing the effects of conventional weapons. Weaponeering: Conventional Weapon System Effectiveness, Second Edition provides an extensive analysis of the techniques used to predict the effect of air- and surface-launched conventional weapons directed against ground targets. These methods are found typically in Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manuals (JMEM) and associated weaponeering tools such as the JMEM Weaponeering System. This book is ideal for beginners who need to get up to speed quickly, as well as for those familiar with the topic who need a refresher on new weapons, new target classes, or new methodologies. Software is included, illustrating many methods reviewed in the book.

Topics Discussed

Basic tools and methods—including fundamental topics in statistics, weapon trajectories, delivery accuracy, target vulnerability, and simple effectiveness calculations.

Air-to-surface weaponeering—including the effectiveness of unguided air-delivered single weapons, sticks of bombs, projectiles, cluster munitions, and guided weapons directed against single or multiple ground targets.

Surface-to-surface weaponeering—including indirect fire weapons such as artillery and mortars, and direct fire systems such as small or medium caliber weapons as used against personnel, materiel targets, and small boats.

Advanced weaponeering—dealing with higher fidelity weapon characteristics such as air blast, trajectory, ground penetration, and cratering, and discussing specific target types in more detail, including personnel, tunnels, above-ground buildings, bunkers, and bridges.

Collateral damage estimation, anti–air weaponeering tools, and target acquisition.
