Abstract
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LIFE CYCLE COST (LCC) METHODOLOGY AND COST MODEL FOR COMPARING A LARGE MONOLITHIC SPACE BASED RADAR SYSTEM TO A SMALL DISTRIBUTED SPARSE ARRAY RADAR SYSTEM IS DISCUSSED. R&D, PRODUCTION, AND O&S COST FOR EACH RADAR AT WBS LEVEL 2 WILL BE DEVELOPED IN PHASE I. COST ESTIMATING RELATIONSHIPS (CERS) FOR EACH COST ELEMENT BREAKOUT UNDER THESE MAJOR PHASES WILL ESTIMATE THE COST AT THE WBS LEVEL 2 FOR EACH RADAR. THE MODEL WILL PERFORM LCC TRADES AMONG SURVIVABILITY, RELIABILITY, MISSION REQUIREMENTS, MANUFACTURING ASSUMPTIONS, LAUNCH VEHICLE CANDIDATES, AND SERVICING OPTIONS. THE DELIVERABLE DURING PHASE I WILL BE A WORKING MODEL TO BE USED BY AF DEVELOPMENT PLANNERS IN MAKING PROGRAM DECISIONS. DURING PHASE II, THE MODEL CAPABILITY WILL BE EXPANDED TO MORE DETAIL FOR EACH RADAR SYSTEM, ADDITIONAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS WILL BE INCLUDED, AND OUTPUT COMPARISONS ENHANCED.
