The Active Sonobuoy Model simulates a single aircraft attempting to detect and maintain contact on a single submarine. The submarine executes a pre-determined sequence of maneuvers upon counter-detection of the active sonobuoys. Under present methodology these maneuvers are not situation dependent, and do not provide an accurate depiction of reality. The purpose of this thesis is to improve the level of reality of the Active Sonobuoy Model through the implementation of a set of situation dependent maneuver rules for the submarine. This "smart" submarine is then compared to the previously existing "dumb" submarine through the use of hypothesis testing under two measures of effectiveness. The results show that the "smart" submarine provides a more difficult target for the aircraft to detect and sustain contact with than the "dumb" submarine.
