Abstract:

This report documents the results of an analytical study to develop an architecture for a Total Environment Survivability TES methodology to provide a capability to evaluate the relative importance of 1 threats on technologies and 2 technologies on air flight vehicle non-nuclear survivability in the total environment. This methodology couples mission effectiveness and life cycle cost analysis techniques to yield a final measure of merit MOM or payoff for each technology evaluated. Three candidate methodologies are described which were studied and compared to arrive at the final selected approach. The selected methodology is described in detail along with a qualitative assessment of the methodology using a candidate technology and threat problem. The report also documents the development plan for the implementation of the methodology. Author
