This study has developed a test program plan for demonstrating the in-place hardness of an advanced ballistic missile weapon system. A test requirements analysis methodology was devised, utilizing a systems approach, to examine a WS-120A system baseline design with respect to a given weapons effect environment criteria, define the testing required to assure hardness of each system element, trade off applicable simulation techniques, and recommend a series of test concepts. These concepts were then logically combined into efficient and cost-effective in-place hardness demonstration test programs for the launch facility and launch control facility.
