Abstract:

The problem of allocating munitions from M weapons systems to N target complexes is studied and a review of pertinent literature is presented. An algorithm for the solution of the problem in the special case of two weapons systems against N targets is developed and programmed for computerized solution. The results of an example problem are shown and tested. Discussion of the algorithms extension to more than two weapons systems is included as are alternative solution techniques. Author
