Abstract : Adequate military communications are essential to the security of the United States, especially in the various stages of major wars. Enough communications must survive to make effective use of our military forces and weaponry, even in the face of a concerted enemy effort to destroy those communications. An evolutionary approach to provide survivability is recommended. It must be provided by the design engineer. Afterthought and modification must be replaced with foresight and design. The engineer must make survivability a criterion in every design decision. The design engineer needs help with the challenges and associated details of successfully accomplishing this. The author discusses and recommends development of convenient-to-use survivability engineering design tools to provide this help. (Author)
