Abstract
THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL EXAMINE THE ANTI-SIMULATION TACTIC BOTH FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE OFFENSE AND FROM THAT OF THE DEFENSE. THE OFFENSE POINT OF VIEW INCLUDES DETERMINING THE SIGNATURE FEATURES THAT THE ANTI-SIMULATION TACTIC ATTEMPTS TO DISGUISE AND THE DEGREE TO WHICH THESE FEATURES CAN BE MODIFIED BY PRACTICAL ALTERATIONS OF BOTH THE RV AND THE DECOY. THIS PORTION OF THE RESEARCH WILL ALSO ADDRESS IMPORTANT THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL ISSUES SUCH AS HOW TO DETERMINE THE NUMBER AND THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE MULTIPLE CLASSES THAT RESULT FROM THE APPLICATION OF ANTI-SIMULATION AND HOW TO BEST IMPLEMENT THE TACTIC IN PRACTICE. THE DEFENSE POINT OF VIEW FOCUSSES ON THE MOST EFFECTIVE STRATEGY THAT CAN BE EMPLOYED TO COUNTER THE TACTICS IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A QUANTITATIVE ESTIMATE OF ANTI-SIMULATION EFFECTIVENESS. PROCEDURES FOR COMBINING THE DATA FROM MULTIPLE SENSORS WILL BE DERIVED AND APPLIED TO BOTH EXOAND ENDO-ATMOSPHERIC ENGAGEMENTS IN ORDER TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE DEFENSE TACTIC IN A MULTI-SENSOR ENVIRONMENT AS A FUNCTION OF THE TYPE AND THE AMOUNT OF A-PRIORI INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO THE DEFENSE. RESULTS WILL BE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE THE CHARACTERISTICS THAT CONTAIN THE MOST POTENT DISCRIMINATION INFORMATION AND THESE WILL BE RELATED TO THE PHYSICAL PHENOMENA SO THAT THE APPLICABILITY OF THE TACTIC TO SPECIFIC SYSTEMS CAN BE ESTABLISHED.
