This paper consists of an analysis of the problems pertaining to the interdiction of a land logistics network, Leontieff-type input-output models are employed to describe the flows of materials in the logistic system, The objective of interdiction is regarded to be the reduction of exogenous demands required of the system, These demands are represented I the models. Consideration is given to the alternatives of interdicting the flows of materiel through the depots, the materiel in the stockpiles at the depots, the flows of materiel between depots, and of interdicting the handling facilities and capacities of the depots, the stockpiles, and the logistic routes. The paper contains a discussion of the use of analog computers and associated plotting equipment for the solution of the systems of differential equations involved in the models. The author points out the utility of these computers to the military commander using the models in planning an interdiction campaign.
