Abstract:

Three schemes, proposed by others, for sampling certain MX ICBM systems for purposes of arms limitation verification inspection are evaluated. The principal criterion is the probability of detecting excess missiles as a function of the number of shelters to be sampled. Other criteria are the geographical distribution of the shelters, the number of occupied and empty shelters disclosed, and the need of a master list of missile locations.
