Abstract : The paper develops a model of a naval patrol system for a particular geographic region and against a particular target. The objective in developing the model was to determine the optimum deployment of a limited number of patrol craft. The decision variable is the choice of patrol areas. The model was developed by taking account of intelligence evaluations and peculiarities of the geographic configuration of the region. The objective was defined to be equivalent to one of locating the set of patrol areas for which the probability of finding a target within them was a maximum. A definite range law of detection was adopted and the targets were assumed to travel on straight line tracks. The model is only meant to be a preliminary one. (Author)
