Abstract:

The purpose of this effort is to review existing computer models and methodologies and to select one which best satisfies the target-acquisition requirements of the Theater Nuclear Force Survivability TNFS Program. Of the methods and models reviewed, only the following four models appeared to have any possibility of accomplishing the necessary multisensor multitarget tasks the SCREENCRESS Model the CAMWTH Model the SAI Combat System Survivability Model and the STANO-SAM IV Model. The report concludes that none of the models as they now stand is adequate for the needs of the TNFS Program. Each of the models could, however, with adequate modifications serve the TNFS Study needs. The report concludes that the CAMWTH model be used as a base for the target acquisition requirements of the Theater Nuclear Force Survivability Program. This alternative was chosen as that best suiting the needs of the TNFS Study with regard to what target acquisition data is presently available or could be reasonably made available from planned tests for model input, timeliness of TA model availability, resource restrictions for model modification and testing, and quality of anticipated results.
