Abstract : The NATO Reference Mobility Model (NRMM) is a simulation tool used to compare vehicle design candidates and to assess the mobility of existing vehicles under specific conditions. NRMM was developed and validated in the 1970s and 1980s and computer technology and models have advanced greatly since then. The current team is exploring the possibility of updating and improving NRMM with physics-based models to replace the empirical data used in NRMM. The proposed result will be a Next-Generation NRMM (NG-NRMM).
