Abstract:

This report is the documentation for a computer code developed primarily to aid development engineers by providing estimates of the relative importance of components in terms of effectiveness. The ARPSIM computer model was developed in support of a requirement to estimate the effectiveness of the various kill mechanisms fragmentation, antenna blast, vehicle blast, and direct hit of an Anti-Radiation Projectile ARP against a typical air defense radar- emitting target. A Monte Carlo technique is used to generate estimates of the probability of kill for a single ARP fired against a single target. The influence of various fuzing schemes and guidance errors are considered in determining burst points.
