A hierarchical weapon systems valuation model framework is discussed and the applicability of the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) in establishing relative values of military weapon systems is investigated. The model is a modified version of the weapon effectiveness index/weighted unit value method (WEI/WUV), a conventional method of static valuation of ground weapon systems as well as a combat unit's force potential. The hierarchical structures gives some unique features to the application of AHP. A calibration study for the model with AHP-based pairwise comparisons has been conducted for some weapon systems in Korea. Its results confirm the applicability and practicality of the 1-9 scale AHP by group judgments in measuring the relative values of weapons
