MetadataShow full item record
Various naval tactical decision aids (TDAs) are reviewed as to nature of inputs, outputs, and, in most cases, underlying models. The primary purpose is graduate instruction in operations research applied to development of TDAs. The principal categories of TDAs reviewed are search TDAs, target motion analysis TDAs, integrated TDAs for battle gtoup command (ITDA and JOTS), and environmentally dominated TDAs (TESS). A history of each category is included. Appendices address user-friendliness in TDA design, TDA training and user's guides, and various stochastic process topics that are useful in TDAs.
