This thesis utilizes Extended Air Defense Simulation(EADSIM), a government-owned computer model, to determine the optimum stationing of an AEGIS ship in an Anti-Theater Ballistic Missile(ATBM) role defending two cities. The conclusions stated depend upon the validity of that model. The AEGIS ship's command being unsure of enemy launch sites and target intentions, the geometrically worst-case enemy launch points against the cities were modeled. Numerous potential positions from which an AEGIS ship could actively defend the cities with its Surface-to-Air missiles were assessed by simulation. Those positions which appeared advantageous were additionally evaluated in order to obtain greater confidence in the results of the ship's defense from those assigned stations. In order to aid in visualization of the results, expected TBM hits on the cities, and raid attrition by the AEGIS ship, were displayed on scatter, three-dimensional surface, and contour plots, from which the optimal stationing area of the ship was indicated
