The study addresses the problem of estimating the development, procurement, and installation costs of surface ship electronic warfare equipment of the future. The Cost Estimating Relationships CERs were developed using the following factors year of development, weight, volume, sensitivity, power output, gain, complexity and dummy variables for active equipment, equipment designed for large ships and one for those designed for small ships. Cost estimates are made for three systems presently under development by Raytheon Company and Hughes Aircraft Company under a design-to-price program.
