Abstract:

A simulation model for the open ocean submarine versus submarine search and detection problem is presented. The objective of the simulation is to estimate the probability with which a nuclear powered attack submarine will achieve sonar detection of a nuclear powered transiting submarine using a search plan based on external intelligence. A detailed description of the model and its use are included along with a typical analysis.
