Modern warfare uses information gathering resources ("sensors") and C4ISR capabilities to detect, acquire, and identify targets for attack ("shooters"). This report provides analytical state-space models that include the capabilities of the above functional elements in order to guide their appropriate balance; this includes attention to the effect of realistic errors, e.g. of target classification and battle damage assessment (BDA). The great sensitivity of strike effectiveness to BDA error is described in the text and illustrated in Figures 3.12 - 3.15.
