RAND CORP SANTA MONICA CA
Pagination or Media Count:
STROP is a highly aggregated central nuclear war game, coded for a high-speed computer, which evaluates a pair of Red and Blue allocations of missiles and bombers to some combination of four target systems missile, sites, bomber fields, bomber defenses, and value targets. The routine will evaluate one pair of Red and Blue allocations in about 150 of a second. The routine can be used to generate and survey a large sample of Red and Blue allocations or to evaluate specific allocations selected by the analyst. STROP is designed as one element of a family of central nuclear war models concerned with the generation of strategic war plans and the evaluation of strategic force structures.
