The past few years have brought an increased interest in the scientific approach to decision-making. Current Literature generally concerns itself with analytical theories.. This paper investigates an application of the statistical decision process to the problem of ASW tactical decisions. The Bayesian decision process is utilized. The paper analyzes the basic ASW decision problem with emphasis on the uncertainty aspect of a possible submarine contact. A mechanism is developed to formally connect the general problem areas.
