Abstract:

DEVELOPMENT OF INNOVATIVE APPROACHES TO ENHANCING THE GROUND C3 SEGMENT SURVIVABILITY OF SPACE SYSTEMS REQUIRES A METHOD FOR MODELING THE SURVIVABILITY OF THE GROUND SEGMENTS OF SUCH SYSTEMS IN ORDER TO ALLOW COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF APPROACHES AND SELECTION OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE ONE FOR DEVELOPMENT. SPC HAS DEVELOPED A COMPUTER MODEL OF THE PHYSICAL SURVIVABILITY OF SUCH SYSTEMS. GIVEN RELEVANT INFORMATION OF THE CONCEPT OF OPERATION, THE PHYSICALLY OBSERVABLE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE GROUND SEGMENTS, AND THE CAPABILI TIES OF SOVIET THREAT INTELLIGENCE AND WEAPONS SYSTEMS, THE MODEL SIMULATES THE INTERACTION OF THE GROUND SEGMENTS AND THE THREAT ^ DURING A PROTRACTED NUCLEAR WAR. OUTPUTS INCLUDE THE EXPECTED LIFETIME OF THE SYSTEM, ATTRITION RATE OF THE GROUND UNITS, TIME SPENT UNDER SURVEILLANCE, USEFUL OPERATING TIME, AND SEVERAL OTHER MEASURES OF EFFECTIVENESS. THE MODEL APPLIES GENERICALLY TO ANY SYSTEM OF LAND MOBILE UNITS AND FIXED FACILITIES (E.G., LOGISTICS SUPPORT FACILITIES). UNDER PHASE I, SPC WOULD (1) ADAPT THE CURRENT MODEL TO ALSO SIMULATE SEA-AND AIR-BASED APPROACHES TO PROVIDIING THE GROUND C3 SEGMENTS OF SPACE SYSTEMS, (2) PERFORM A PARAMETRIC EVALUATION OF THREE ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES (LAND, SEA, AND AIR BASING), AND (3) IDENTIFY THOSE ASPECTS THAT ARE WORTHY OF DETAILED, SYSTEM SPECIFIC ANALYSIS. THESE ANALYSES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN AS A PART OF PHASE II.
