A typical naval ship has multiple systems which can be used to defend itself against a cruise missile threat. These systems may consist of surface-to- air missiles, MK 45 guns and the Close-in-Weapon-System to name a few. Until recently each of these system's effectiveness against a cruise missile was assessed independently of the other systems onboard the ship. The purpose of this thesis is to develop an overall system effectiveness model for the DD-963 Spruance class destroyer. The model considers the integration of the defensive systems onboard, the availability and reliability of these systems, and contains parameters that can be used to incorporate the crew's ability to employ the various weapon systems against a cruise missile threat
