Abstract
AS SURFACE SHIP CAPABILITIES IMPROVE, THE PROBLEM OF ASSESSING A SURFACE WARFARE THREAT BECOMES INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT AND COMPLEX. THREAT LEVEL DEPENDS ON NUMEROUS INTERDEPENDENT FACTORS: THE FORCES ARRAYED ON BOTH SIDES, THEIR DISPOSITIONS, AND INTENTIONS; GEOGRAPHY AND OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS; AND TACTICS AND LOGISTICS OF THE OPPOSING FORCES. THE ABILITY TO QUANTITATIVELY ASSESS ENEMY SHIP CAPABILITIES AND TO DISPLAY AND EVALUATE TACTICAL OPTIONS WOULD BE EXTREMELY VALUABLE TO ANY COMMANDER FACING SUCH A THREAT. PRB ASSOCIATES, INC., PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A PROTOTYPE SURFACE THREAT ASSESSMENT AND RANKING SYSTEM THAT WILL QUANTIFY AS FUNCTIONS OF TIME AND POSITION THE GENERAL THREAT ENVIRONMENT AND RANK SPECIFIC THREAT UNITS ACCORDING TO THEIR ABILITY TO INFLICT DAMAGE ON FRIENDLY FORCES. THE SYSTEM WILL BE BASED ON TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPED FOR THE AN/TSQ-142 TACTICAL MISSION SUPPORT SYSTEM DESIGNED AND BUILT BY PRB ASSOCIATES FOR THE US NAVY.
