dc.description.abstractMaritime operations in a littoral area demand a fundamental change in the future defense build-up of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF). The anti-air warfare (AAW) capability of the JMSDF in the littoral area, especially against very low altitude anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCMs), should be improved. To achieve the required future air defense lethality, the JMSDF must optimize the resource allocation within a limited budget. Therefore, it is important to understand the essential elements of air defense lethality by the JMSDF Aegis destroyer in order to improve their operational effectiveness. In this study, a measure of effectiveness (MOE) for Aegis lethality against an ASCM attack is defined as 'a denial area at an acceptable risk.' Using this MOE, spread sheet lethality models based on Aegis weapons characteristics, target detection range, reaction time, and ASCM speed, are developed and used to study several alternative improvements to Aegis.en_US
