MetadataShow full item record
The author develops a model and computer code for some of the functions of an Integrated Air Defense System (IADS). These are combined with an existing FORTRAN program, called TACOPS, which is used by the Naval Weapons Center (NWC). The functions and attributes of an IADS such as target detection, track data processing, target position and accuracy estimation, target assignment, information relay to other unites and information relay delays are described. Shortcomings of the fire control and coordination capabilities of TACOPS are described. Using the IADS model, the results against a sample engagement are compared to the original TACOPS. Documentation of the code is provided to allow future operators the ability to refine and/or restructure the algorithm as needed. Selection criteria for picking a Measurement of Effectiveness (MOE) are presented.
