A computer model is presented for determining the daily allocation of airstrikes for interdicting a lines-of-communication (LOC) network assuming an exponential damage function. The allocation of sorties to arcs in the network is based on the assumptions that (1) flow of supplies is restricted by network capacity and (2) parameter values for each arc are independent. Upper and lower flow bounds, cost per unit flow, maximum repair time and cost, and the vulnerability parameter for each arc are required as input data. The model selects that arc to strike which maximizes the repair cost plus the product of the increase in minimum cost circulation flow and repair time. The procedure is programmed in daily cycles, allowing repair m interdicted arcs. A sample problem and all documentation necessary for duplicating the computer program are given.
