Abstract : The report represents a five weeks effort in reviewing and analyzing the existing air defense models used by Directorate for Plans and Analysis, U.S. Army Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. The existing simulation models are event oriented in the sense that a catalog of events and their time of occurrence are compiled purely on the geometry and time relationship of various targets and air defense units. These events are then sorted out by playing a simulated air defense game. The present report outlines an algorithm which is time oriented, and the interaction of the fire units and target is presented as the battle unfolds itself. The approach seems promising in that it may considerably reduce this central processor unit time and the bookkeeping. (Author)
