Abstract:

The RAIDTRAC Model is a fast-running, deterministic computational methodology for the assessment of issues of concern to analysts involved in high-to-medium altitude air defense HIMAD planning or analysts planning raids through HIMAD defended areas. The model is structured for assessment of ground HIMAD technology providing sector less than full circle coverage with a capability for multiple rather than sequential engagement of targets. The model quantifies 1 the coverage achieved by a prescribed air defense deployment 2 the coverage effectiveness i.e., intercepts against a prescribed raid track and 3 estimates of the assests required to suppress the air defense engaging along the track. The model thus provides a quantitative basis for selection of candidate HIMAD deployments and against specific raid tracks, candidate raid tracks through specified HIMAD deployments and candidate air defense suppression missions associated with such tracks. The resultant selections among the candidates may then become part of the input to a formal large-scale simulation or serve as stand-alone results.
