The application of search theory provides a systematic approach to the location and interdiction of mobile tactical ballistic missiles. Specifically, the use of an algorithm that employs a negative search to eliminate regions of an area based on terrain and road access is presented in this paper. Defense Mapping Agency digital terrain elevation data is used in conjunction with the algorithm to create probability maps of the search area. Included are five examples of this. With the search area reduced, several distribution functions are examined to simulate search time distribution needed for optimal allocation of search effort.
