Abstract:

The basic purpose of this handbook is to provide a roadmap through the US Army material acquisition process, emphasizing the actions necessary to ensure that countermeasure and counter-countermeasure considerations are properly integrated into that process. The methodology by which the CM and CCM aspects of a given concept or system may be examined is developed. The interaction of threat information and systemconcept requirements development is discussed, and a method for improving the process is suggested. A matrix correlates the organizations and agencies that play a CMCCM role with the specific events in which those roles are included. Each event-related role is discussed in detail. How product improvement may be used to integrate CCM into an item and the methodology by which this is done is discussed. An example of CMCCM methodology actually in use is included. Author
