This study describes the continuing development of a computer model for the simulation of burst kill probabilities for air defense gun systems firing projectiles at maneuvering aircraft. The computer simulation developed by Keeling is modified by adding a high explosive proximity and contact fuzed round to the simulation. The objective of this thesis is to develop and analyze the shipboard anti-air defense problem in order to choose the best air defense gun system. The air defense gun system studied consists of a 40 mm gun, firing fragmenting proximity and contact fuzed projectiles, an early warning radar system, and a fire control system. The aircraft vulnerability and the gun data used in this thesis are entirely synthetic to avoid security classification problems.
