The primary purpose of this report is to support the assessment of the operational effectiveness and suitability of system design concepts and characteristics in threat environments. The results of these studies may be used in comparing alternative systems or force mixes such as in cost and operational effectiveness assessments and to assist in evolutionary requirements definition and in the systems engineering process.
They are indispensable in comparing alternative concepts in the pre-milestone I timeframe and in identifying and quantifying critical survivability characteristics which must be included in the operational requirements.

This reports presents the results of three interdependent analyses. These are used to indicate the probability that aircraft will survive specified combat missions against specified threats and to provide measures of cost effectiveness and design tradeoff studies by which candidate survivability enhancement techniques may be evaluated.
