Abstract : The F-4G Wild Weasel (WW) weapon system provides the teeth in getting the defense suppression job done--identifying, locating, and killing enemy ground based threat radars. The objective of this thesis was to develop a methodology that could examine and evaluate the WW defense suppression mission. The problem was developed for a NATO/Warsaw Pact encounter in Central Europe. A model of the threat environment was built using the SLAM computer simulation language. Threats in the defense sector can be moved as desired. Friendly aircraft can enter the system at a variety of intervals, altitudes, and airspeeds. WWs hunt for threats to attack by searching, identifying, locating, and then launching their weapons at the threat. WW tactics can be changed as the requirements of the mission dictate or at the desire of the WW crew. Self-protection jamming can be selected by either WW or attack aircraft. Enemy threats will fire at an aircraft when the aircraft comes within the threat's ranges as long as the threat is not engaged with another aircraft. Early warning radars account for threat radar command and control functions; their control over the associated radars can be changed as desired.
