Abstract
DEEP BASING OF ICBM'S WHICH OFFERS DISTINCT ADVANTAGES IN TERMS OF FORCE SERVIVABILITY, MUST HAVE AN EFFECTIVE POST-ATTACK EGRESS SYSTEM.A PRINCIPAL CONCERN IS THE INABILITY TO ACHIEVE RAPID EGRESS FROM THE BASE THROUGH PARTIALLY FRACTURED GROUND. A SYSTEM IS NEEDEDTO SUPPORT EGRESS OPERATIONS BY ASSESSING DAMAGE AND PROVIDING GRAPHICAL INFORMATION CONCERNING GEOLOGICAL CONDITIONS TO THE BASE COMMNDER. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE ISSUE OF DAMAGE ASSESSMENT BY INTEGRATING EXISTING INFORMATION AND RESERCH ACTIVITIES IN THE AREAS OF GROUND RADARAND SEISMIC SYSTEMS, GEOSTATISTICS, AND COMPUTERIZED MAPPING INTO THE CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF A DAMAGE ASSESSMENT SYSTEM. A COMPUTERIZED MAPPING INTO THE CONCEPTUAL OF A DAMAGE ASSESSMENT SYSTEM. A COMPUTERIZED ANALYTICAL MODEL OF SYSTEM PERFORMANCE WILL BE DEVELOP ED AND APPLIED TO EVALUATE CANDIDATE SYSTEM CONFIGURATIONS. THE MODEL WILL BE EXERCISED TO EVALUATE PERFORMANCE OF THESE SYSTEMS IN CONJUNCTION WITH GEOLOGIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DEEP BASE AND RELATED DAMAGE SCENARIOS. THE RESULTS OF THE PHASE I RESEARCH WILL ESTALISH THOSE SYSTEM CONFIGURATIONS FOR WHICH ENGINEERING DESIGN AND EVALUATION ARE TO BE CONDUCTED DURING THE PHASE II RESEARCH PROGRAM.
