Abstract : The paper develops a model for computing the probability of kill for an air defense complex composed of antiaircraft automatic weapons, radar controlled guns, and missile batteries. Two dimensional terrain was used to evaluate the model. The probabilities were determined at major terrain points along the route of approach to the vital area for altitudes of up to 3000 feet above terrain. (Author)
