Abstract
PRESENT AND FUTURE U.S. SPACE SYSTEMS WILL SUPPORT STRATEGIC AND COMBAT FORCES BY PROVIDING SURVEILLANCE, COMMUNICATIONS, NAVIGATION AID, WEATHER DATA, ETC. WELL-FOUNDED QUANTITATIVE ASSESSMENTS OF HOW COMBAT FORCE EFFECTIVENESS DECREASES AS SATELLITES ARE LOST ARE GENERALLY LACKING. PHASE I OF THIS STUDY WILL PROVIDE AND ILLUSTRATE A METHODOLOGY FOR DERIVING SUCH RELATIONSHIPS, ACCOUNTING FOR THE COLLECTION AND FUSION OF SPACEAND NON-SPACE-GENERATED DATA, AND COMMUNICATIONS VIA NON-SPACE AS WELL AS SPACE NETWORKS. PHASE II WILL IMPLEMENT THE METHODOLOGY FOR CURRENT AND PLANNED SPACE SYSTEMS VS. PROJECTED SU THREATS. IT WILL COMPARE THE RESULTS TO THE LEVELS OF SUPPORT NEEDED FOR VARIOUS COMBAT MISSIONS AND THE LENGTH OF TIME SUCH SUPPORT IS NEEDED FOR EACH MISSION. MEANS OF IMPROVING SURVIVABILITY ENOUGH TO REMOVE DEFICIENCIES WILL BE PROPOSED, MAKING MAXIMUM USE OF THE PREVIOUS EXISTING STUDIES OF VARIOUS APPROACHES TO SURVIVABILITY ENHANCEMENT.
