The thesis describes an analysis of a Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) buoy field. The analysis was based on estimates of the probability a submarine would be detected during an encounter with MAD buoy. The estimates were determined by using a simulation of both a crosscorrelation detection system and square law detection system. Using estimates, a random search model was used to determine a lower bound on the search effectiveness of a MAD buoy field. In doing this, the effects of false alarm rate, sweep width, noise level, buoy depth, and target displacement were analyzed. A discussion of the simulation inputs, as well as a program listing are included in the thesis in order to facilitate future use of the simulation.
