Abstract
One of USSOUTHCOM's primary missions is to disrupt the flow of drugs from Central and South America to the United States via the southern approaches. The main question we address in this project relates to the interdiction efforts of USSOUTHCOM: how many cocaine-carrying vessels of a certain type are afloat in the area of operations at any given time? This information will provide insights to USSOUTHCOM on the relationship between force allocation and the effect on counter-drug operations. Our second contribution is the development of a strategic model that considers both the government and Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTOs) as decision makers.
