Abstract:

The models presented here are for the allocation of missiles to defended targets with a fixed force of imperfect defense missiles. The attackers will be directed first at the defense sites then at the targets themselves. The imperfect defenders are used against the attackers on a one-for-one basis as long as defenders remain. If any attacker penetrates the defense site, all the defenders at that defense site are destroyed. The problems addressed are the offensive problems of determining how many attackers to send to each defense site and to the target complex. The necessary mathematical relationships are derived and used to obtain graphical results.
