|Summary||Anti-submarine warfare (ASW) is a core mission area for the U.S. Navy and an essential component in achieving sea control. The allocation of torpedoes in support of ASW across a U.S. Fleet is currently a manual process based on shore-based personnel¿s experience or historical norms. This study will analyze the impact of torpedo loadouts incorporating a complex set of constraints ranging from platform capabilities to probability of kill. A mixed-integer program will be used to compare the effectiveness of different torpedo loadouts. The goal of this work is to maximize the probability of a successful outcome in a theoretical campaign against anticipated submarine threats.|
