This thesis is a study of the defensive power of a medium size Naval force subject to air-to-surface missile attack. It evaluates the attrition to an escorted amphibious force and its escorts under different tactical situations for a variety of defense parameters. Using attrition as the measure of effectiveness, it draws conclusions useful to a small Navy regarding its anti- air warfare AAW defenses. The study models the force-on-force process of aircraft versus warships in discrete time steps, or salvos. The degradation of the force is expressed in number of ships. This study extends and deepens work by W. Hughes and Lt. E. Hatzopoulos H.N, incorporating new features to analyze AAW principles and concepts. Air defense, Anti-air warfare.
