Abstract:

Fault Tree Analysis is a method implemented through the use of logic symbols, for analyzing either qualitatively or quantitatively the events that lead to a mission or system failure. This work examines an Anti-Aircraft Warfare AAW scenario restricted to the defense of an aircraft carrier. A fault tree of the events that lead to a hit on the carrier is displayed logically from the top down. Fault tree analysis when applied to the AAW model is examined with a view toward its usefulness as an instructional and a predictive tool. Author
