Abstract:

This report describes the development of a computer model that simulates air defense engagements between a platoon of Air Defense Anti-Tank Systems ADATS and 20 aircraft. The model is programmed using SLAM II software and user-written FORTRAN inserts. Experimentation with the model yielded the necessary data for comparing the utilities of four computer-aided threat evaluation algorithms implemented in a target-rich environment. The model was run 100 times for each algorithm. The goal was to determine which of three experimental algorithms yielded results most similar to the results when using a more realistic but resource-intensive control algorithm. Experimental results provided support for using a target prioritization algorithm similar to the one formulated by the manufacturer of the ADATS, Martin Marietta.
