Optimization of resources distribution during intelligence in informational confrontation
AbstractCompetition in the information field is characterized by the fact that each side wants to protect their information and to obtain information about an opponent. Intelligence is very important measure under conditions of uncertainty, when the opponent action is unknown and cannot be predicted accurately. It can provide information about the importance of information and its distribution between objects, vulnerability and the security of these objects. Method of determining the intelligence expediency depending on objects vulnerability and resources was developed on the basis of mathematical model. Principles of resource allocation that maximizes intelligence effectiveness were established. Examples of calculations in a system with two objects with different vulnerabilities were given. Intervals of resources volume in which intelligence is expedient in the case of various forms of vulnerability functions were calculated. The recommendations on the optimal resources allocation between intelligence and information obtaining depending on the objects vulnerability and total resources were provided.
