Cost and Effectiveness models are developed for selecting a new tactical communication system in the Korean Army. Alternatives included an off- the-shelf purchase of existing U.S technology and four variants of a self- developed system. Since exact quantitative military data was not obtainable for security reasons, a subjective approach is taken. Sensitivity analysis is employed to account for errors in effectiveness evaluation and in value assessment. This research recommends the use of the cost-effectiveness methodology in order to provide for selecting a future Korean tactical communications system.
