Abstract:

In the computation of damage aggregation to an area target from a salvo of N weapons, the assumption of a cellular target i.e., a target composed entirely of cells is often made. This assumption together with the implicit associated assumption of weapon strikes only at the center of those cells constitutes a significant simplification to the real world model with potentially significant errors in the computation. It is the purpose of this paper to eliminate the assumption of cellular targets.
