Abstract
This thesis presents a methodology that could aid the development of effective AAW (Anti-Air Warfare) ship and aircraft screens for AAW commanders at sea. The method employs stochastic discrete-event simulation of detect-to-engage sequences to develop expected leaker values for single platforms versus a common set of threats. A network flow-based stationing algorithm minimizes expected leakers by selecting the best station for each tested platform. The stationing algorithm creates AAW screen recommendations which can be evaluated using a second simulation, which gives expected leakers for a group of AAW platforms against a set of threats. The battle group simulation allows expected leaker comparisons of recommended screens with user-designed formations. Both simulations offer symbol-based graphics options. Direct application of the methodology would lead to a Tactical Decision Aid which could provide assistance in improving a naval battle groups ability to defend itself from air attack. Extensions might prove to be useful in Tactical Ballistic Missile Defense, Joint littoral AAW operations, or in land-based AAW problems. (KAR) P. 2
