Abstract
THE PROPOSED STUDY IS AN INITIAL QUANTITATIVE INVESTIGATION OF THE PROBLEMS AND BENEFITS INHERENT IN COORDINATED CRUISE MISSILE ATTACKS LAUNCHED BY MULTIPLE NAVY PLATFORMS AGAINST MULTIPLE DEFENDERS. THIS RESEARCH WILL IDENTIFY AND BOUND THE SYSTEM-LEVEL CONSTRAINTS FOR SUCCESSFUL COORDINATION, SELECT ALGORITHMS FOR OPTIMIZATION OF THE ATTACK WITHIN THOSE CONSTRAINTS, AND EXAMINE THESE ALGORITHMS FOR FEASIBILITY OF INCORPORATION INTO CRUISE MISSILE WEAPONS SYSTEMS. THE APPROACH IS AN EXTENSION OF TECHNIQUES USED BY THE PROPOSERS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF CURRENT NAVY HARPOON AND TOMAHAWK EMPLOYMENT DOCTRINE. IT COMBINES QUANTITATIVE MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF THE PARAMETERS INVOLVED UNDER VARIOUS SIMPLIFYING ASSUMPTIONS WITH A COMPLETE MODELING OF REPRESENTATIVE SCENARIOS WHICH REFLECT THE FULL COMPLEXITYOF THE PROBLEM. THIS MODELING WILL BE CARRIED OUT USING A MODIFICATION OF THE GENERALIZED ANTI-SHIP CRUISE MISSILE ENGAGEMENT MODULE DEVELOPED BY THE PROPOSERS FROM THE ENGAGEMENT MODULE OF THE SASHEM PROGRAM. PART OF THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL BE TO REVIEW THE MATHEMATICAL MODELS UNDERLYING THIS PROGRAM AND TO CERTIFY THE PROGRAM'S COMPLIANCE WITH THOSE MODULES. THIS STUDY PREPARES FOR A PHASE II PROJECT IN WHICH A COMPLETE PARAMETRIC MODEL OF ENGAGEMENT CONSTRAINTS IS DEVELOPED, AND PROTOTYPE DECISION AIDS TO DETERMINE COORDINATION FEASIBILITY AND OPTIMIZE SUCCESS WILL BE DEVELOPED.
