Abstract: This paper presents modelling techniques for networked systems. A network metric is suggested for evaluation and comparison of different networked systems in a network-centric warfare context with random or targeted attacks against the network structure. A method is also presented to calculate the threshold values of link failure probabilities where it is optimal for an attacker to shift targeted attacks against links of lower degree nodes. This information is vital for the defender in planning and constructing more robust networks against targeted attacks.
