Abstract:

The thesis contains a case study in systems analysis. The case study concerns a coastal radar bomb scoring practice route belonging to Strategic Air Command, which passes close to a commercial nuclear power facility. When a B-52 crashes on the practice route in the proximity of the power plant, interest is suddenly focused on the possibility of a B-52 crashing into the plant, and the consequences of such a crash. The case study presents the views of several interested parties. An analysis of the problem is then presented, from the viewpoint of an analyst at the level of the headquarters, United States Air Force.
