Abstract : A model has been developed to compute the highlights of a campaign consisting of a large number of aircraft penetrators proceeding over an enemy territory, which is defended by radars, SAMs, AAA weapons, and interceptors. The model consists of a collection of programs whose major functions are to display the campaign situation graphically, to compute a comprehensive timetable for each penetrator's involvement with each defense site and each interceptor, to derive condensed statistics and graphs from that timetable, and to post-process the timetable to arrive at an estimate of attrition on individual penetrators and defense elements in the course of the campaign. The current capability of the model is 100 penetrators, 50 sites and 50 interceptors, with a running time (on an IBM 360/65 computer) of less than 5 minutes post-processing to obtain penetrator and defense element survival probability time histories throughout the campaign.
