Abstract : The objective of this study was to perform a cost, schedule and technical Decision Risk Analysis (DRA) on the Platoon Early Warning Device (PEWD) to determine the Engineering Development alternative(s) that present the lowest risk to the government. Presently there are a number of personnel and/or vehicle sensor programs, including the Army MISER and PSID/PEMID and the Navy SURSS programs. All of these programs have different requirements and applications. This DRA evaluates the schedule, cost and performance risks of meeting the PEWD specifications for each of those programs, and also for new development programs.
