Abstract:

The goal of this thesis is to develop a capability to simulate naval anti-air warfare AAW systems at the Naval Postgraduate School NPS. Students in many curricula at NPS can use such a model in thesis research or course work related to air defense. Examples of courses in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics in which there is a use for AAW simulation are AE3705 Air Defense Lethality and AE3251 Aircraft Combat Survivability . The Extended Air Defense Simulation EADSIM was selected as the model to acquire and install on the Silicon Graphics computer workstations of the Computer Center Visualization Laboratory. EADSIM was developed by Teledyne Brown Engineering for the U.S. Army Space and Strategic Defense Command and is a powerful analysis tool that can model many aspects of air warfare. The author has used EADSIM to develop AAW and Strike Warfare scenarios for use in AE3705 and AE3251. These scenarios required the creation and modification of platforms within the graphical user interface to simulate naval units. These scenarios can be run and displayed as animated playback files for analysis. In addition, the EADSIM weapon performance model was studied. The default values for weapon systems probability of kill Pk were modified, and the results were examined to determine the overall effect of Pk within a simulation.
