Abstract : The development program for a system with a radiation survivability program is very complex. Careful planning and execution of all phases of the development are necessary from the beginning. When there is a nuclear radiation requirement, Hardness Assurance (HA) must be part of the planning. While this document focuses primarily on activities related to the effects of nuclear radiation on electronic components and materials, a hardness assurance program must include all hostile environments employ balanced hardening concepts at all levels. It is the intent of this document to point out the agencies and aids available to help in constructing the most effective HA program for a given system and its mission. it is intended to provide guidance to both the system development Project Manager at the sponsoring agency and the Project Manager for the prime contractor.
