Abstract:

Close-form approximations for the probability of damaging surface targets with aerially delivered weapons are developed and analyzed for six different employment situations single weapons against point targets, multiple weapons against point targets, single weapons against area targets, multiple weapons against area targets single weapons against point targets with location uncertainty, and multiple weapons against point targets with location uncertainty. In each case, conditional damage and probability of coverage functions are developed, the product of which defines the probability of damage or probability of fractional damage depending upon whether the target is a point or an area, respectively.
