Abstract:

A methodology for evaluating the military payoffs of adding various advanced equipments to the baseline SSN716 was developed. This report addresses an effort directed at improving and extending the SSN evaluation models dealing with two areas of SSN performance including 1 SSN effectiveness in an area clearance mission, 2 SSN effectiveness in multiple engagement scenarios. Area clearance is characterized by the existence of a specific geographic ocean area which must be cleared of enemy submarines within a given time. The area clearance operation usually occurs in advance of an attack force deploying in or moving through the area that has been cleared. The following sections of the Multiple Engagement Scenarios provide the reasoning for the methodology development the definition of Markov Chains formulation of the multiple engagement scenario as a Markov Chain the algebraic representation the definition of the initial states the definition of the transition probabilities for the attack transition matrix TM the definition of the transition probabilities for the transition to attack phase matrix the computational considerations and the description of computer program inputs and results.
