Abstract:

To enhance insight into a war at sea, a large-scale, aggregated, and highly flexible model of the ASW campaign is offered. The model was designed, first and foremost, to examine the change in the marginal effectiveness of friendly ASW forces due to changes of force level, force mix, and force employment strategies. The model is keyed to the interaction of the threat submarine force with friendly ASW forces and merchant or military shipping. Specific features of the model provide for threat deployment options, allocation of friendly forces, attrition to threat and friendly forces, aggregation of friendly ASW force performance, sensitivity to force levels, deployment of submarines within wolfpacks and coordinated barrier stations, and parametric treatment of other warfare area effectiveness. The campaign model has been programmed in the APL360 language for use on an IBM 360-67 computer. Author
