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 for naval surface combat
(Institute For Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS), 2005)
In this work we propose a stochastic version of the salvo model for modern naval surface combat. We derive expressions for the mean and variance of surviving force strengths and for the probabilities of the possible salvo ...
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 ...
