Abstract:

These models explore interactions among a Weapon systems, b Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance ISR capacity, accuracy, and timeliness, c Concepts of Operation, and d Scenarios. These interactions allow us to estimate the sensitivity of top level Measures of Effectiveness MOEs such as BLUE losses and time taken to achieve BLUEs operational objective to factors such as Improved weapons Pk at longer range Improved ISRBattle Damage Assessment BDA capability RED ISRBDA deception tactics Improved ISRBDA counterdeception capabilities Alternative concepts of operation as defined by parameters such as number of targets attacked per wave, attacker weapon mix, etc. Changes in scenario parameters e.g., total numbers of targets and non-targets. The effects of imperfect, non-instantaneous ISRBDA on combat attrition are captured by a set of target states which combine BLUE perception, ground truth, and recent target history. Target state populations after the n1st wave are computed from target state populations after the nth wave via functional dependencies involving the attrition, ISRBDA, OPS concept, and scenario models used. By tracking these target state ulations with time, one can unravel the chains of cause-and-effect that lead to the sometimes counterintuitive sensitivities of MOEs to the various parameters mentioned earlier.
