This study examined the availability and accessibility of post-attack launch windows using simulation. The basis for the study was the research and development of the Rand Corporations Airbase Damage Assessment Model. Prior to this study, damage assessment has always been done from the attackers point of view, that being how can we do the most damage, given a set resource. This study examined it from a standpoint of survivability specifically starting with a standard airbase configuration, developing the most probable attack scenario, running the model, and examining the data to develop the probability of availability for the various launch windows required by the differently configured U.S. aircraft. Manual inspection of the output allowed the development of the probability of accessibility from the ramp area to the available launch window. Finally, examining two alternate proposed runway configurations and developing their net contribution to the probabilities of accessibility and availability. Author
