Abstract:

This report is concerned with the estimation of the effectiveness of systems for defense against low altitude air attack. The estimation and evaluation process involves many factors, of which only a part are amenable to modelling, mathematical analysis and computer simulation. The factors which must be evaluated by military judgement are at least as important as those which may be compared analytically. The object of system modelling is to provide a means for analyzing those system characteristics which, within reasonable expenditures of time and effort, may be compared analytically, thus reducing the number of factors which must be evaluated by judgement in making decisions. In the last several decades the ability of system modelling to thus support the decision maker has progressively improved.
