Abstract:

In this thesis a methodological approach to the determination of the cost effectiveness of naval gunfire support is developed. Two models are presented. The first is a linear program developed by the Ballistics Research Laboratory, in which naval gunfire is employed against a relatively static threat. The second is a probabilistic model wherein the capability of naval gun systems against transient targets is treated. Included is a discussion of the theoretical considerations of the cost of naval gun systems which concludes in the presentation of some alternatives of presenting the results of analysis of this type.
