When mobility predictions get it wrong, vehicles become immobilized, putting the soldiers at risk and jeopardizing mission success. Leveraging the most advanced physics models and modern computing power, Next Generation NATO Reference Mobility Model (NG-NRMM) will improve our capability to predict the mobility of ground platforms over a wide range of terrains. NATO’s Applied Vehicle Technology (AVT) Panel formed Research Task Group AVT-248 to develop a NG-NRMM. The NG-NRMM has the potential to significantly reduce procurement risks enabling alternative solutions to be considered. Secondly, it will provide operational decisions makers with a tool for assessing their own and opposing vehicle mobility in the area of operations, which will increase confidence in mission planning and reduce the risk of mission failures due to compromised vehicles.

Using modern methods, such as NG-NRMM, can significantly improve the ability to make more accurate mobility predictions and assessments which holds the promise of reducing prediction errors by an order of magnitude. There are simplified NG-NRMM solutions, running real time or better that can replace NRMM for use in operational planning, training, and field deployment. There are also high fidelity solutions which are suitable for research and development work at the technology and procurement level where statistics and confidence maps could be implemented. Although there has been significant progress in NG-NRMM development, further work and investment is needed to make it the new standard.
