Abstract : This study develops a computer simulation model of manned and unmanned penetrators in a strategic scenario in order to evaluate the effects of various force mix combinations of cruise missiles and manned bombers. The model is largely based on three generations of strategic weapons to be used in a strategic conflict. In general, the model uses data based on current, projected, and future technological developments in the area of strategic penetrators and uses this data to measure the synergistic effects of various combined manned/unmanned penetrator strike forces in terms of survivability and the ability to inflict the required level of damage to the enemy target base. The model, called DILUTE, is written in SLAM, using extensive FORTRAN inserts, and is designed to allow for considerable flexibility and user control. (Author)
