Abstract : This thesis researches the feasibility of a TDA (tactical decision aid) to defend a high value surface unit from an enemy submarine. Accordingly, this research adopts a FAB (forward and backward) algorithm to search for a moving target. It develops a prototype of a TDA: FABTDA which gives an optimal allocation for search aircraft.
