Abstract:

A review of the methodology of operations analysis OA has been completed. The basic steps required to formulate and solve an OA problem have been listed and discussed in detail. These procedures have been applied to a typical tactical situation -- the submarine barrier patrol. An effectiveness model for a submarine using a hypothetical mix of weapons has been generated. Kill probabilities and cost-effectiveness comparisons have been made for a variety of weapon mix possibilities.
