This thesis develops an analytical model that describes defense for the Sea Base. Although models have been developed for defense of a carrier battle group (CVBG) with one High Value Unit (HVU) against air, surface and subsurface attacks, there are unique aspects of the Sea Base that are not specifically addressed in CVBG defense models. First, the defense of the sea base is different in that there are multiple HVUs (Expeditionary Warships - EXWAR Ships) expected in the Sea Base. In addition, there is a credible threat of being overwhelmed by High Density Threats (HDTs). This model specifically addresses the issue of defending multiple HVUs against HDTs. The model also gives a commander insight into the optimal placement of defenders with respect to parameters such as threat sector, minimum detection range, attacker and defender velocity, and defender weapon ranges. The model can also be used for Operational Requirements (ORs) development by Sea Base system designers. By inputting parameters associated with certain scenarios, system developers can see how performance of a specific parameter, such as weapons range, probability of kill, and radar detection range, can affect the quality of Sea Base defense with respect to the effective area of defender coverage and the number of defenders required to achieve a certain level of protection.
