Abstract:

It is desirable to develop and solve rigorous mathematical models that facilitate the determination of the effectiveness of alternative types of missile defense systems and evaluate the sensitivity or robustness of such effectiveness to a the attackers perception of defense capabilities and parameter values and b the defenses perception of attack and defense parameter values. We have developed two-sided mathematical optimization models that focus on the value of a target set that is saved by the defense in the face of either optimal or sub-optimal attacks. We have also developed models of a similar nature that apply to a single target these are appropriate for analysis of terminal defense.
