Abstract : A general-purpose OPTIMIZER computer program has been developed to provide aid in determining solutions to problems which are simulated on a digital computer. The report describes the application of the program to a large-scale naval simulation model, where it is desired to determine optimal destroyer escort screening tactics against a penetrating submarine.
