Abstract:

Historical data relating to the cost and physical and performance characteristics of equipment comparable to the FLEETSATCOM system elements have been collected and analyzed. CERs that relate the cost to performance or physical parameters have been derived for the FLEETSATCOM system elements. Estimates of the cost uncertainty associated with each of the FLEETSATCOM system elements have been incorporated into a computer program with the resultant output a probability distribution of the costs of the total FLEETSATCOM system. Finally, throughout the report the CERs have been validated by applying them to the technical and physical parameters and for the planned quantities, as of September 1973, of the FLEETSATCOM system elements.
