Abstract : A probabilistic assessment of single-ship air-defence effectiveness against an attack by a stream or wave of anti-ship capable missiles (ASCMs) has been conducted for ships fitted with a mix of either 'hard kill or 'hard kill/soft kill' weapons systems. Results are expressed in terms of the probability of a ship defeating all threats, or the expected number of hits achieved by the ASCMs.
