In future warfare, most part of resources and their platforms would be replaced by unmanned system like UGV(Unmanned Ground Vehicle). They are also connected each other with communication network and it is called NCW(Network Centric Warfare) environment. Hence how to measure the effectiveness of UGV operated in NCW circumstance become an important issue. However, there are few research paper to deal with this kind of UGV effectiveness issue coupled with communication failure. In this paper, we proposed a new ABM process to measure the UGV effectiveness combined with communication success ratio based on terrain condition of the ground engagement. Additionally, we also provide the effectiveness analysis result when communication repeater is applied in case of communication failure.

미래전에서는 무기체계의 상당부분이 무인체계로 대체될 것이며 이들은 상호 통신으로 연결되어 네트워크중심전으로 변화하고 있다. 이에 따라 무인체계 효과분석이 중요한 이슈가 될 것이다. 하지만 무인체계의 주요통제 수단인 통신장애 상황에서 UGV에 대한 효과분석 연구는 매우 미흡한 실정이다. 본 논문에서는 지형을 고려한 통신장애 상황에서 무인체계의 운용효과분석을 위한 새로운 에이전트기반 모델링 절차를 제시하였다. 추가적으로, 통신장애 상황을 극복할 수 있는 통신중계기를 추가하였을 경우 UGV운용효과의 변화에 대한 분석결과도 제시하였다.
