Summary Since the mid-1970's, NPS has been the leading academic institution in the world in the analysis and design of survivability of combat systems. Work in the area of aircraft survivability is the model that other platforms emulate to ensure the survivability and security of their systems. The Naval Postgraduate School's Center for Survivability and Lethality is the world's leader in multi-platform survivability and was established as a center of excellence for education and research in survivability and lethality by coordinating the interdisciplinary efforts of faculty, program managers, engineers, and industry.
Lockheed Martin Space Systems and the Naval Postgraduate School will work to further develop the concept of Spacecraft Survivability, Spacecraft Survivability engineering methodologies, and Spacecraft Survivability analysis. Research will be documented in a primer on Spacecraft Survivability.
