Abstract:

Coming to periscope depth is one of the most intensive of the routine submarine operations. Errors in Fire Control and Sonar System information serve to produce uncertain contact solutions that complicate the decision of selecting a safe course. The model developed in this thesis simulates a specified number of trials on each possible course, with the measure of effectiveness for each course being the probability of the course being acceptable with respect to specified minimum range criteria. The model outputs a geographic display and a graph of the measures of effectiveness versus course.
