Abstract:

The objective of this study was to develop a methodology for evaluating different mixes of close combat missiles used in both state-on-state and hybrid warfare. Close combat missiles were defined as ground tactical line of sight missiles. The desired end product was a spreadsheet based multi-attribute decision value model. The study identified a number of missile characteristics, developed a decision hierarchy as the modeling framework, developed units of measures for those metrics, and implemented the conceptual model in an Excel Workbook. The Simple Multi-Attribute Rating Technique approach to weighting the characteristics was adopted. The results of interviews with Subject Matter Experts were captured in the spreadsheet model. A methodology for assessing mixes of missiles was developed and tested with the spreadsheet model.
