en Limba Engleză Hardback – 29 feb 2020

The primary objective of Weaponeering, Third Edition is to assist those engaged in assessing the effects of conventional weapons to understand the components, limitations and techniques needed to perform that assessment. The intent is to explain the underlying methodologies behind various weaponeering tools rather than how to use the tools themselves. Now a comprehensive two-volume set, it features 38 chapters of authoritative information that guides the reader from introductory through advanced concepts.

These books describe the principal methods used by the Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manual (JMEM) to predict the probability of successfully attacking ground targets using air launched or ground launched weapons. Air launched weapons include guided and unguided bombs, air-to-ground missiles, laser and GPS guided weapons, rockets, and guns. Surface engagements will cover both direct and indirect fire weapons.

A chapter on anti-air weapons effects is also included which involves airborne targets attacked with air or ground based threats. The author outlines the various methodologies used in operational products of the Joint Technical Coordinating Group for Munitions Effectiveness (JTCG/ME) including JMEM Weaponeering Systems (JWS) that are widely used in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, as well as military services in some other countries.

Volume 1, Weaponeering: An Introduction, overs the basic subjects that need to be understood to compute weapon effects based on the concept of an Effectiveness Index (EI). These subjects include weapon delivery accuracy, warhead lethality and target vulnerability. This approach gives reasonable, rapid results and allows an easier understanding of current methods used to estimate weapon effects.

Volume 2, Advanced Weaponeering, describes more complex methodologies used in JWS and includes specific techniques for dealing with particular targets such as personnel, buildings, bunkers, bridges, and collateral damage concerns. In addition, some of the basic science underlying the methods is expanded including topics such as air blast, ground penetration and projectile trajectory. The two-volume set offers a 30% saving on buying the volumes independently.
