Abstract:

This model was developed to evaluate the performance of advanced marine vehicles as well as conventional displacement vessels in Search and Rescue SAR. It may also be used to investigate the operational and environmental aspects of SAR. Vessel characteristics, environmental and caseload information, including survival limits, are inputs to the model. For the vessel and scenario under consideration, the model produces a point estimate and confidence interval of the number of lives saved. A single page output and computer graphic present the information to the user in an easily understood format. The confidence interval can be reduced by making additional runs of this Monte Carlo model. Author
