Abstract
THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP AN ANALYTIC MODEL TO SUPPORT THE ASSESSMENT OF ELECTRONIC WARFARE VULNERABILITY OF AIR DEFENSE SYSTEMS AND TO EVALUATE APPROPRIATE ECCM SYSTEM CONCEPTS OR SYSTEMS. THE MODEL WILL REPRESENT THE TECHNICAL AND TACTICAL ASPECTS OF AIR OPERATIONS AGAINST AN AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM RELATING ENGINEERING LEVEL PARAMETERS TO OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE. IT WILL INCLUDE THREAT INTELLIGENCE COLLECTION ASSETS EMPLOYED AGAINST THE AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM, THE USE OF ELECTRONIC AND LETHAL MEANS TO ATTACK AND DEGRADE THE SYSTEM AND THE LOCAL ENGAGEMENT ITERPLAY BETWEEN THREAT ON-BOARD OR ESCORT SYSTEMS AND THE GROUND-BASED WEAPONS. THE MODEL WILL BE DEVELOPED USING A RATE BASED APPROACH PREVIOUSLY DEMONSTRATED IN MODELING ESM SENSOR SYSTEMS, AND AIR DEFENSE SYSTEMS PERFORMANCE. AN ACTIVE/PASSIVE DUEL MODEL WILL BE USED FOR MODELING ANTI-RADIATION MISSILES. A MARKOV RENEWAL PROCESS/COMPETING RISK APPROACH IS PROPOSED AS A BASIS FOR SUCH MODELS AND TO REFLECT THE DYNAMIC INTERPLAY OF ECM-ECCM IN AN ENGAGEMENT. THE RESULTING MODEL IS INTENDED FOR USE IN A STAND ALONE MODE OR FOR INTEGRATION INTO FORCE-ON-FORCE MODELS. IT WILL SERVE AS A BASIS FOR A FULL EW VULNERABILITY MODEL, ALSO TO BE INTEGRATED INTO FORCE-ON-FORCE MODELS.
