Abstract : A major military center (for instance, a tactical operations center, administrative operations center, fire direction center, etc.) is subject to nuclear or concentrated conventional attack if detected by the enemy. Frequently it is proposed to move centers from one location to another at short intervals as protection against such attacks. The operation of the center, however, is interrupted by moving it. A mathematical model of this situation previously developed (Lincoln Lab. Rept. 22G-0071, 5 May 61) is enlarged; different procedures of replacement for centers which have been destroyed are introduced, and their influence upon the operative loss is determined. It is shown that for many different replacement procedures it is possible to minimize the operative loss by judicious choice of the time of operation. (Author)
