Abstract : NAS was awarded a contract on 16 July 1990 to provide the U.S. Strategic Defense Command Ground Based lnterceptor/EKV Project Office 13,881 Direct Productive Person Hours of support during the period from contract award through 15 January 1995. The requirement was for research and engineering assessments to help validate technology for a ground based, non-nuclear kill exoatmospheric interceptor. The original major objective of the requirement was assessment of interceptor design and test information in order to determine the most cost-effective technological approach. NAS was required to provide assessments of test plans and procedures, perform critical issue analyses, definition and resolution for the GEl development and demonstration program, as well as subsystem engineering analysis in the areas of lethality, survivability, architecture balancing, and life cycle engineering cost and risk analysis. These efforts were required for the then ongoing Baseline Development, for analyses in support of National Security Directive 14, and in preparation for a Milestone II Decision Review. Extensive technological analysis was also envisioned for support of major annual reviews including Cost Analysis Improvement Group (CAIG) and the Defense Acquisition Board (DAB). The program at contract award included three (3) test flights for the Functional Technology Validation Program scheduled in FY 90 and FY 91 and approximately five (5) additional flights for the Experimental Test Bed scheduled for FY 93 through FY 94. Support was to be provided in accordance with the schedule provided in the Statement of Work, which envisioned a Milestone II Decision in the FY 94/FY 95 time frame.
