Abstract:

The paper evaluates five maneuvering strategies for an evader in a two dimensional continuous evasive game. An evaders movement, in two dimensions at constant speed, is simulated by choosing courses that are independent and distributed according to one of the five course change rules. The times between course changes are independent exponential random variables. An improvement over a previously established least upper bound on evader survivability is presented. The bulk of this paper is the presentation of evader survivability as a result of the maneuvering strategy he employs.
