The Mathematical Model of Air Defense Control Process
The article deals with problems on shipborne antiaircraft defense (AAD) system control process. The development of a plan for distribution of shipborne air defense systems through enemy objects is a one of the main stages of this process. The distribution plan represents an assignment array, the element of which includes identifiers for the air object and AAD facilities and is assigned for that air object. The distribution plan is generated with ranking of air objects on a danger level, evaluating the capabilities or efficiency of the AAD facilities assignment to air objects, and generating the plan of AAD facilities distribution through air objects according to the given efficiency criterion. When solving this problem, it arises the necessity of considering not only the actual state of the system but the predicted one. Authors suggest a mathematical model that considers jointly planning processes (problem solving on the predicted state) and control processes (problem solving on the actual state) of AAD facilities. The model takes into account the using of multiplex means and their loading features as well as the dynamics of evolving events.

Mathematical Model and Algorithm for the Identification Task of Radio Emitting Objects of Tactical Situation on Data From Ships of Task Force
The article presents a mathematical model and algorithm for tasks of radioemitting objects identification. The identification task partition into component parts is carried out. New approaches to the calculation of the radioemitting object identification level from geometric and signal features will be found in the article. Authors propose a priority sequence of tasks to be solved based on practice of working with special information. A new mathematical model for constructing the identification evaluation function from signal features is developed. This model is not restricted to the assumption of thelinearity of this function. Algorithms for calculating the threshold values of object identification are presented. An algorithm for the radio object identification is developed under conditions of the computing experiment performed in the MATLAB environment. Following the results of the computing experiment, the algorithm has been defined more exactly, the positive outcomes of using the model have been provided. Passive radio aids, information identification, object identification level, machine learning method.

The Model for Forming the Flight Profile of an Aircraft Using Dynamic Programming Tools
The article deals with the process of forming the flight profile of an aircraft. Calculation and selection of the optimal flight profile of aircraft are some of the most common issues in the tasks related to the planning of aviation operations. The flight profile in the coordinates ‘rangealtitude’ is a sequence of areas each of which corresponds to a specific program for changing altitude and speed. The construction of the flight trajectory of an aircraft is characterized by the work with a large number of nonlinearly varying dependent parameters and taking into account the restrictions imposed on flights: the permitted echelons of aviation flight altitudes, forbidden zones with unacceptable meteorological conditions, forbidden zones of action of enemy air defenses. These factors make it very difficult to model the specified process. The application of the mathematical apparatus of dynamic programming in solving this problem can allow the most efficient choice of flight modes of aircraft and optimize the process of forming the flight profile as a whole. Fighter aircrafts, flight profile, optimization algorithm, dynamic programming.

Identification of Information Received From Passive Radar Means of Task Force Ships
The article considers the mathematical model for identification of information received from passive radar means and construction of a metric form allowing to estimate the degree of different objects identity on the basis of an operator’s experience and algorithms of automatic identification of radar and radioradar information. While constructing the metric form, machinelearning methods were used, particularly support vector machine. The method and the mathematical model for solving the ambiguity problem of radioradar information identification based on the obtained mathematical function estimating degree of different objects identity are given. This mathematical model is reduced to the linear programming mathematical model and presented on the basis of standard methods. The computational experiment was performed in Matlab. In the context of the experiment, the algorithm of radioradar objects identification was developed. With the use of data obtained in the computational experiment, the algorithm specification was hold and the positive result of the model usage was obtained. Passive radar means, identification of information, objects identity measure, machinelearning method.

The Model of the Airborne Alert Charting With the Refueling Opportunity
The article deals with aircraft control automation during the airborne alert. The task of airborne alert is a part of the task for fighters to provide the air cover of naval force. A modern approach to solving task in aircraft patrol zonation with airtoair refueling opportunity is used when examining the automation problems. The approach consists in automation of airborne alert charting with the use of optimal mathematical models of alert aircrafts and air refueling tankers zonation according to the chosen criterion. The dependence of the chosen criterion upon the quality performance of the ship air defense system is demonstrated in the section on problem definition. The approach allows to combine the mathematical models of alert aircrafts and air refueling tankers zonation tasks into the single algorithm. The models use the methods of linear programming mathematical tools. Also the approach allows to improve the automation level of the process providing naval force air defense concerning fighter aviation. Standing patrol, fighter aviation, distribution, optimization algorithm, refueling.
