Abstract:

In Support of the Multistatic ASW Capability Enhancement MACE Program, a new operations research tool has been developed that takes into account the complex, range-dependent, littoral battlespace and the need for new measures of performance MOPs to reflect current and evolving war-fighting concepts. This paper argues that 1. the prevalent legacy ASW MOP is often inappropriate to use, 2. the prevalent legacy MOP is often improperly calculated, and 3. there is a better operations research framework for considering range-dependent multistatic systems.
