This document defines fundamental survivability program management requirements for the system acquisition life-cycle. As a management standard, this document requires that the contractor shall a. Identify the hardness allocations to the building blocks that make up a survivability program for each design concept. b. Describe how these basic elements are integrated into concurrent activities and disciplines within a contractor s overall hardware program. c. Draft and establish a survivability program and set up the necessary infrastructure to sustain it and to effectively carry out the prescribed survivability tasks. d. Identify the necessary order and sequence for timely execution of all tasks in a survivability program plan SPP including review of the vulnerability assessment. The technical aspects of survivability, as well as methodology for implementation, shall be detailed in the contractor s survivability and vulnerability program plan SVPP. Therefore, this document should facilitate the establishment of an efficient and effective survivability engineering program that is an integral part of a contractors systems engineering organization. This document is applicable to space systems i.e., composed of space, link, and ground support segments that are required to operate within specified performance boundaries when exposed to natural environments andor hostile threats. All probable hostile threats shall be investigated, including combinations of directed energy, laser, biological, and chemical attacks as a minimum.
