Abstract:

The value of meteorological information in the naval application of two relatively new concepts from the emerging field of Operations Research. The basic fundamentals of game theory are presented in Part I, along with examples of the use of this tool where weather is a factor. Part II considers PERT, a method applying network techniques to mission planning, using mathematics, statistics, and computers. The technique gives the staff weather officer a better idea of those activities which will require the greatest amount of weather support. Author
