A computer simulation model was developed (Interactive Simulation of System Performance, or ISSP) simulating the integrated performance of hard-kill (surface-toair missile, or SAM, and close-in weapon system, or CIWS) and soft-kill (defensive jammer, or ECM, and Chaff) systems in the defense of a single naval ship against attack threat by four anti-ship missiles (ASM). The quantitative contribution of each system to ship survivability is evaluated. The hard-kill and soft-kill weapon systems are the focus of the two major anti-air warfare (AAW) improvement plans assessed in this simulation. Based on these plans, six decision options were created. In addition, this study provides an analysis and comparison of the results of the inner air battle abstracted from various weapon models. Finally, the use of the simulation results in making choices among candidate weapon systems is illustrated.
