Abstract : The report describes two computer simulation models that have been developed at the Naval Ordnance Laboratory to provide assistance to minefield planners in evaluating the performance of minefields. Provision is made for dealing with varying input parameters, and primary attention is focused on studying the effectiveness of arming delays and ship count settings in preserving the threat in the presence of influence sweeping. Use of the models is explained in detail and sample results for a hypothetical minefield are exhibited. (Author)
