Abstract:

This report describes the Integrated Survivability Assessment ISA methodology, which provides a practical, simple process for assessing the survivability of integrated systems systems of systems, systems, andor subsystems with respect to the integrated threat spectrum andor to individual threats. ISA methodology applies classical systems engineering analysis work breakdown structure processes to formulate an analysis matrix-of-matrices, which enables a roll-up aggregation of results to any analysis level desired. ISA addresses the analysis of both weapon and countermeasure effects, equivalently, as well as considers operational environment effects natural and manmade, and for the first time, provides systems analysts with a commonunified survivability assessment integration methodology for these diverse areas. The primary enabling factor facilitating this integrated approach to survivability assessment is the employment of a common Vulnerability Risk Assessment methodology for all threat effect survivability analyses.
