Overview

This text presents the various mathematical methods used in military operations research in one easy-to-use reference volume. The reader will find the calculations necessary to analyze all aspects of defense operations, from weapon performance to combat modeling. The text is so clearly written and organized that even newcomers to the field will find it useful.

Included with the text is an updated version of Defense Analyses Software, a compendium of software subroutines that allow the reader to compute numerical values for functions or tables derived in the text. Each subroutine is provided with a detailed reference to the equation from which it was derived to ensure that its intended application is consistent with the assumptions used in the derivation.

The third edition has a new chapter on theater missile defense based on the concept of layered defense with different strategies of allocating defense interceptors against short- or mid-range ballistic missiles.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Desiring peace, the US preparation for war includes analytical techniques and modeling of its own and enemy defense capabilities as taught by the author at the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, in Ohio. A new chapter on theater missile defense extends the concept of layered defense against ICBMs to shorter range or cruise missiles. The other chapters cover some once classified scientific methods in military operations, properties of weapons, passive targets, combat models, strategic defense, tactical engagements of heterogenous forces, reliability of operations and systems, target detection, optimization methods, and statistical modeling. Appendices include probability tables, solutions of combat equations, and information on using the accompanying defense analysis software for PCs. Dates are not given for the previous iterations.
