Abstract:

The Antisubmarine Warfare System Evaluation Tool ASSET is a generic high-level antisubmarine warfare ASW modeling tool, designed to aid ASW personnel in the development and refinement of ASW top-level warfare requirements and the ASW Master Plan. The primary objective of this thesis is to analyze and implement the improvements suggested in previous evaluations of various sub-areas of ASSET. The glimpse rate model for submarine detection used in ASSET has been substituted with compound Lambda-Sigma jump model. There is a different target radiated frequency in each environmental region. Each target will have its own detection rate to reflect the differences in its operating characteristics. Multiple engagements between platforms are used to eliminate the limitations of interaction between opponent platforms. The glimpse rate model is used to determine detection opportunities of maritime patrol aircraft MPA and to approximate a continuous-looking sensor pattern. A different criterion of selecting search probability area SPA and MPA pairs using the ratio of MPAs time on-station over the SPA size was implemented. The feasibility of converting current ASSET code to CLOS was investigated. In addition, part of the code was converted to CLOS.
