Abstract
This Scientific Report demonstrates that a Network Centric Warfare / Network Enabled Operations defence strategy with perfect coordination is significantly superior to an uncoordinated approach. To illustrate this argument, a number of metrics relevant to missile defence are defined, such as: the Probability of Raid Annihilation, the Expected Number of Targets Killed, and the Expected Number of Expended Interceptors. With coordination, the defence can employ a Shoot Look Shoot tactic—where each engagement consists of a salvo of two interceptors—or a Soland’s Shoot-Look-Shoot tactic, where the number of targets is assumed to be known. This report demonstrates that the defence’s coordinated tactics allow for substantial improvements in the effectiveness of missile defence metrics.
