Modeling and Simulation (M&S) engineering has been widely used for design and evaluation of underwater warfare systems. M&S engineering enables more efficient procurement of military equipment by analyzing these systems with simulations. This paper extends previous work, which used an anti-torpedo simulator with only decoys. To facilitate more diverse simulations of anti-torpedo combat, we design and add a simple jammer model, because the jammer is one of the most effective counter-measures against torpedo attacks. Utilizing this proposed model, we collect experimental data about the survivability of surface-ships that use anti-torpedo strategies and analyze the proper parameter values of jammers that satisfy the required Measure of Effectiveness (MOE). The experimental results show both the required performance of jammers and the efficiency of jammers with decoys. The results can be utilized to support the decision-making process for future equipment procurement.
