The A-7 ALOFT Cost Model: A Study of High Technology Cost Estimating.
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
This analytical study contains the development of an appropriate life cycle cost LCC model for the A-7 Airbrone Light Optical Fiber Technology ALOFT system. The model was developed to support an A-7 ALOFT economic analysis which will compare the total systems costs and performance benefits of an A-7 fiber optic linked navigation and weapons delivery system to existing or proposed wire interconnect designs. Major features of this study include the development of 1 A process to derive cost estimates of a high technological development in the early conceptual stage 2 An appropriate LCC model for the A-7 ALOFT economic analysis and 3 Fiber optic costing methodology to support the LCC analysis. This analysis is a follow-on study to An Approach to the Estimation of Life Cycle Costs of a Fiber Optic Application in Military Aircraft AD-A019 379.
