This thesis addresses coordination between ships of a force in anti-air warfare. In support of the need for effective coordination, two coordination schemes are presented. One is based on earliest intercept time and is a candidate for future use. Here, the ship with the earliest projected intercept time is directed to engage the attacker. The second scheme introduces a load sharing feature where current magazine inventories are considered. In line with broad goals of AAW coordination, several measures of effectiveness to compare the schemes are introduced and particular attention is given to the utility of these measures of effectiveness. Potential simulation scenarios and input parameters for a comparison of the two schemes are then presented along with some specific suggestions for statistical analysis of the results. The thesis concludes with final remarks about load sharing, measures of effectiveness, and testing procedures.
