Abstract : The model simulates the PENetration of TACtical airborne weapon systems against enemy targets and the defense systems deployed to protect them. It represents the interactions between the defenses and the penetrators and evaluates the success of the penetration, by determining the number of survivors, as well as the success of the airborne attack on the ground targets, by determining the number or fraction of ground targets destroyed. The model operation is time sequenced allowing events to be generated on the basis of time, position, and activity. (Author)
