Abstract:

A technology breakdown structure TBS of the physical and performance characteristics parametric descriptors of OC platforms is given. This is a systematic divisiongrouping of parametric descriptors into generic categories TBS elements that consistute in toto the means of defining the characteristics and capabilities of a specific platform. The TBS is displayed as a block diagram with a separate narrative that defines each TBS element using standardaccepted definitions, symbols and units of measure where available. The TBS narrative identifies conventional methods of calculation andor measurement of each TBS element, where applicable, and includes a discussion of its applicability to OC platforms. A list of documents that provide detailed discussion of a specific TBS element is provided in the narrative of the element. The block diagram of the Technology Breakdown Structure is given in Section I of this report. This is followed by the narrative definition of the various TBS elements in Section II and a list of references of source material is added at the end of this latter section.
