The search for Tactical Ballistic Missile (TBM) launchers is modeled mathematically using the Random Search Model. Special provisions are made in the model to account for the fact that the launcher is not always exposed to detection by the searcher. The probability that the launcher is exposed to detection is assumed to be both deterministic and stochastic. The tactical implications of the results of the model are discussed and several methods are provided to improve search performance based on an analysis of the model parameters
