This thesis develops a model to assist in determining the surface-to- air missile (SAM) requirement for defensive firepower in a specific theater. Through the vehicles of simulation, combat and mathematical modeling we determine (1) SAM requirement for theater Air Warfare (AAW) defensive firepower, (2) Aegis equipped Vertical Launch System (VLS) battle force structure for anti- ship cruise missile (ASCM) defense, (3) Aegis equipped VLS ship loadout for AAW defense in a specific theater of operation. The model was used against a mock threat potential consisting of 60 attack aircraft, 150 air launched ASCM'S, 100 land launched ASCM'S, and 40 surface launched in the original inventory. Two cases were considered: (1) Combat Air Patrol (CAP) available to the battle force and (2) no CAP available to the battle force. In the first case, the battle force required 196 long-range SAM and five Aegis equipped VLS ships with 40 SAM each. In the second case, the battle force required 352 long-range SAM, ten Aegis equipped VLS ships with 36 SAM each.
