Abstract:

A simulation model was specified. It examines United States Navy Antisubmarine Warfare Screen alternative dispositions for Carrier Battlegroups. The scenario posed is open ocean transit under the threat of an attack from foreign submarine hulls built in the 1990s. The investigation raises the issue of the appropriateness of current Navy practices and suggests that new tactics be developed. The authors thoughts are that in the 1990s there will be ever newer, more lethal, unpredictable threats to United States maritime independence than current doctrine addresses. The full implementation of the simulation program has not been accomplished. A segment of verification output is shown for expository purposes only. A discussion is given on the adequacy of the models abstractions along with their possible impact on potential results of experiments.
