Abstract : This presentation is to describe a SAM-D Firing Doctrine simulation model and how it will be used to evaluate the SAM-D system effectiveness. The model will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of various firing doctrine alternatives as well as the effectiveness of a specific firing doctrine against the different threats which the SAM-D system could encounter. In order to help understand this SAM-D Firing Doctrine Model, I will provide a brief review of the development of the SAM-D system along with an overall system description. The SAM-D System consists of two operational control elements: the Fire Section, and the Battalion Command/Coordination element. The combat element of the System is the Fire Section which is defined as the minimum complement of equipment and personnel capable of conducting air defense operations. The Fire Section performs all functions and operations associated with the immediate conduct of the air battle, subject to rules of engagement and operating procedures established by the Battalion Commander. Six Fire Sections constitute a SAM-D Air Defense Battalion. (Author)
