Force multiplication, in military usage, refers to an attribute or a combination of attributes that dramatically increases (hence "multiplies") the effectiveness of an item or group, giving a given number of troops (or other personnel) or weapons (or other hardware) the ability to accomplish greater things than without it. The expected size increase required to have the same effectiveness without that advantage is the multiplication factor. For example, if a certain technology like GPS enables a force to accomplish the same results of a force five times as large but without GPS, then the multiplier is five. Such estimates are used to justify an investment cost for force multipliers. A force multiplier refers to a factor .

  • Um multiplicador de força, em termos militares, é um ou vários atributos que fazem com que uma força seja mais eficaz do que a mesma força sem os mesmos atributos. Por exemplo, se uma determinada tecnologia, como o GPS, faz com que uma força se desloque cinco vezes mais depressa do que uma força sem GPS, então neste caso o multiplicador vale cinco. Tal valor é usado para justificar vários investimentos ou evoluções tecnológicas em forças militares.
