A verification study of the stochastic salvo combat model
When the stochastic version of the salvo combat model was designed, several assumptions and approximations were made to keep its mathematical structure relatively simple. This paper examines the impact of those simplifications ...
The salvo combat model with a sequential exchange of fire
This paper develops a version of the stochastic salvo combat model in which the exchange of fire is sequential, rather than simultaneous. This sequential-fire version is built by modifying the equations in the original ...
Effective attacks in the salvo combat model: salvo sizes and quantities of targets
This article considers two related questions of tactics in the context of the salvo model for naval missile combat. For a given set of targets, how many missiles should be fired to produce an effective attack? For a given ...
A Stochastic Salvo Model Analysis of the Battle of the Coral Sea
(Military Operations Research Society (MORS), 2005)
In this work we study the Battle of the Coral Sea using a stochastic version of the salvo combat model. We begin by estimating the range of probable alternative results for the battle, given the forces employed; i.e., if ...
Effects of lethality on naval combat models
In the context of both discrete time salvo models and continuous time Lanchester models we examine the effect on naval combat of lethality: that is, the relative balance between the offensive and defensive attributes of ...
