    The Self-Defense Distributed Engagement Coordinator (SDDEC) is designed to provide automated battle management aids to operators who must decide the appropriate responses against missiles threatening U.S. naval assets. The SDDEC updates in real-time the engagement summary (inset) of the current threats and the weapons assigned to those threats. Science fiction taught us to fear smart machines we can’t control. But reality should teach us to fear smart machines that need us to take control when we’re not ready.

A cooperative interception scenario between multiple maneuvering targets, their defenders, and missiles attacking the targets is considered.

To assign defenders to missiles, several computationally efficient weapon–target-allocation algorithms are developed.

We have implemented a suite of metaheuristic algorithms for solving the static weapon-target allocation problem, and compare their real-time performance on a large set of problem instances using the open source testbed SWARD.

The compared metaheuristic algorithms are ant colony optimization, genetic algorithms, and particle swarm optimization.

The weapon-target assignment (WTA) problem is a fundamental problem arising in defense-related applications of operations research.

This problem consists of optimally assigning n weapons to m targets so that the total expected survival value of the targets after all the engagements is minimal.

The WTA problem can be formulated as a nonlinear integer Cited by: The Target-based Weapon Target Assignment problem considers optimally assigning M weapons to N targets so that the total expected damage to the targets is maximized.

We use the term target-based to distinguish these problems from those that are asset-based, that is problems where weapons are assigned to targets such that the value of a group of assets is maximized Cited by: Abstract—The allocation of weapons to targets (such as missiles.

This paper reviews the missile-allocation-problem literature. The problem considered is: given an existing weapon force and a set of targets, what is the optimal allocation of weapons to targets.

References are organized by type, characterized by submodel, discussed, and by: A Simple Model for Calculating Ballistic Missile Defense Effectiveness rion: 95 percent confidence of destroying 95 percent of the incoming attack, assuming four interceptors are fired at each incoming target.2 Interpreting this to mean a probability of that no more than one out of 20 warheads.

Consider a defense platform (a ship) and several threats whose objective is to strike the ship. The ship engages the threats using its defense weapons. A defense plan, D, prescribes the allocation of the defense weapons over a time interval. All the possible outcomes for the allocated weapons are accounted for by the plan, making.

The Weapon-Target Allocation (WTA) problem is used to model the defense of assets in a military conflict. The offense (the enemy) launches a number of offensive weapons which are aimed at valuable assets of the defense.

Since these weapons will be the targets of the defense's weapons, henceforth we will call them targets. Karasakal O., Air defense missile-target allocation models for a naval task group, Computers and Operations Research 35 () – Crossref, ISI, Google Scholar; Ahuja R.

Counter Rocket, Artillery, and Mortar, abbreviated C-RAM or Counter-RAM, is a set of systems used to detect and/or destroy incoming rockets, artillery, and mortar rounds in the air before they hit their ground targets, or simply provide early warning.

The intercept capability of C-RAM is effectively a land version of weapons such as the Phalanx CIWS radar-controlled rapid-fire. Johnson’s Algorithm [8] A game like Desktop Tower Defense has lots of enemy positions (sources) and one destination for all of them.

This puts it into the all sources, one destination category. Instead of running A* once per enemy, we can run an algorithm once, and it will calculate the path for all enemies.

The topics covered in this article include k-means, brown clustering, tf-idf, topic models and latent Dirichlet allocation (also known as LDA). To cluster, or not to cluster.

Clustering is one of the biggest topics in data science, so big that you will easily find tons of books. The weapon target assignment problem (WTA) is a class of combinatorial optimization problems present in the fields of optimization and operations consists of finding an optimal assignment of a set of weapons of various types to a set of targets in order to maximize the total expected damage done to the opponent.

The basic problem is as follows. This emphasis on the “spectrum of automation” is important because, for the most part, nations have yet to deploy fully autonomous weapon systems on the battlefield.

Under prevailing U.S. policy, as enshrined in a November Defense Department directive, “autonomous and semi-autonomous weapons systems shall be designed to allow.
