This study determines the applicability of Life Cycle Cost LCCLogistic Support Cost LSC models in the CEM environment. The scope of this study addresses two of the models identified LSC, PRICE with respect to three Air Force TACAN systems. A methodology is developed to evaluate each model baesd on the five desirable model characteristics availability of input data, validity, sensitivity, completeness, and documentation. The results presented are also framed within the above model characteristics. The most important model characteristic, validity, is accessed by comparison with an AFCS cost study of NAVAIDs equipment. Based on the methodology, the results indicate that both models are applicable in the present and future CEM environment.
