Abstract:

An application of semi-Markov chains to Anti Submarine Warfare ASW tactical systems is illustrated with a hypothetical example. The example involves estimating the probabilities of prosecuting false contacts for varying lengths of time. The use of Markov chains in the analysis of ASW systems, using Fleet ASW Data Analysis Program FADAP data, is discussed briefly.
