Abstract : This Technical Supplement is concerned primarily with four examples of effectiveness evaluations. The systems involved are: The avionics system in a tactical fighter-bomber; a squadron of intercontinental ballistic missiles; a fixed radar surveillance and threat evaluation system and, a spacecraft system. An attempt was made to illustrate procedures employed at different phases of development. The evaluation of the Avionics system takes place during Program Definition; the ICBM squadron, during Operation; the Radar system, during Definition and Operation; and, the Spacecraft, during Acquisition. Each example is intended to illustrate to a different level of detail, various aspects of the evaluation. These examples do not purport to illustrate all possible methods of application and use of the evaluation procedures. Rather they are intended to show some methods for applying the concepts, areas of flexibility in their application, and some uses which might be made of the evaluations. (Author)
