Abstract:

The memorandum describes a mathematical model for processing and evaluating information obtained from observations of missile firings from silo complexes. The model, MEMO Model for Evaluating Missile Observation information, was developed as an aid for investigating the empty-silo problem sometimes referred to as the empty-hole problem. The empty-silo problem basically consists of determining a unique a posteriori probability distribution of residual missiles in a silo complex from which some missile launches have been observed. MEMO enables the simulation and investigation of these events as well as other aspects of the problem, e.g., cases involving noncircular errors. Author
