Abstract:

This Note discusses three time-sharing computer programs which are quick tools for air defense engagement analysis. The programs are based on a Monte Carlo method. The model MONTYX evaluates air defense interceptor configurations by determining their effectiveness against a bomber cell in the terminal phase of an intercept. The model DLMNTY expands the capability of MONTYX to a situation where two bomber types are contained within the bomber cell. The results are bomber probabilities of survival for various interceptor to bomber ratios. The model TOOTH involves the penetration by four types of bombers--two carrying gravity weapons and two carrying standoff weapons. The defense is provided by two types of interceptors in two waves. In the first wave, only raid count by cell is provided. The second wave assumes that a bomber count has been made and standoff weapons have been launched. The results indicate the numbers of bombers of each type surviving each wave of defense as well as the number of standoff weapons launched and those which survive the second wave of defense.
