Abstract:

This study evaluates alternative COSAL Coordinated Shipboard Allowance List models for the TRIDENT submarine using POLARISPOSEIDON submarine data. Performance is measured by the range of items, overall cost and resulting effectiveness, where effectiveness is based on actual submarine usage. The objective is to develop COSAL to meet TRIDENT performance goals. These protection goals vary by MEC Military Essentiality Code from 90 to 99.99. The recommended model provides variable item protection based on MEC and unit price. It attains TRIDENT objectives and was the most cost-effective model examined. Author
