Abstract:

This technical report describes a microprocessor version of a threat allocation model based on simple decision heuristics. Model capability is demonstrated by allocating a threat composed of four reentry vehicles r.v. systems over four categories of assets using different asset defense schemes. Allocations obtained with the heuristic model compare favorably with allocations obtained with a much more sophisticated model. The report also describes a generalized RD project network simulation model which provides reliable estimates for project start and completion times, project duration times, and failure statistics. The simulation model is demonstrated with a complex network composed of six individual, interdependent projects. The report includes as an appendix a paper describing a mathematical optimization approach to threat allocation decisions.
