Abstract
This thesis looks at the Antisubmarine Warfare Systems Evaluation Tool (ASSET), written by Metron, Incorporated, for OP-71, and how it relates to a current threat environment. ASSET is a campaign level ASW Monte-Carlo simulation intended for developing ASW Master Plans, top-level war fighting requirements (TLWRs), appraisals, and assessments. ASSET, delivered in 1990, was written from a U.S.-Soviet conflict perspective, and needs some restructuring to be able to provide conflict Measures of Effectiveness using platforms that are expected in a regional war. Included as suggested improvements are: a conventional submarine addition with major emphasis on power plant capabilities and installations; improvement to the surface group=submarine interaction; and improvements and additions to the methods of detection available to the objects in simulation.
