Abstract : A simulation is developed (Linear Anti-Ship Missile Air Defense Simulation, or LASMADS) which models ship defenses under ASCM attack. Using this simulation, a firepower index is developed for current naval ships. The firepower index is used in a deterministric model which predicts the results of the ASCM-Surface ship engagement, and is responsive to the most important attack and defense characteristics and variables. Uses of firepower indexes as an operational planning tool is discussed. (Author)
