Studies on damage aggregation for weapons salvos II
Esary, James Daniel
MetadataShow full item record
This document records three working studies from an ongoing investigation of models and methods for the prediction of the cumulative effect of weapons salvos. It is the second such document, following NPS Technical Report NPS55-90-16, July 1990. Its first two papers are about cellular targeting scenarios which lead to the proportional damage aggregation mechanism which has figured strongly in the investigation so far. The other paper extends an earlier comparison of an empirical rule for damage aggregation to the results of models combining proportional damage aggregation with various weapons hit distributions

Removal of the assumption of cellular targets in computing damage aggregation to an area target from a Salvo of N Weapons Russak, I. Bert; Jayachandran, Toke (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-12); NPS-MA-98-001In the computation of damage aggregation to an area target from a salvo of N weapons, the assumption of a cellular target (i.e., a target composed entirely of cells) is often made. This assumption together with the ...
Varady, Jeffrey D. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1994-09);This study addresses the development of a Tactical Decision Aid to assess expected damage to a target from a salvo of warheads. It is based on a recently developed Cellular Target Concept. A secondary purpose for the ...
Rigoni, Michael P.; Correia de Souza, Wagner (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-06);In 2013, the Department of Defense (DOD) implemented an accuracy metric to monitor how well the services and Defense Logistics Agency were forecasting demand for inventory items. After three years, results were still poor. ...
