Abstract:

A methodology for improving a large scale C3 system in an optimal manner is developed. The first step of this methodology consists of a procedure for designing experiments to run on a large scale C3 system it aims at determining the smallest number of experiments that enables one to evaluate the effectiveness of an actual system. The second step consists of a dynamic programming algorithm aimed at determining an optimal sequence of improvements for a system on the basis of the effectiveness analysis. This methodology is applied to an actual air defense system each configuration of the system is evaluated with the first step of the methodology then, the second step is used to find an optimal sequence of modifications for the system as it goes from one configuration to another.
