Abstract
This paper describes a conceptual structure of ship survivability definitions and concepts and deals with the need to incorporate a total‐ship approach to surface ship combat survivability as part of the philosophy used to guide a ship's design. Included are: * A discussion of the increasing emphasis placed on ship survivability during the ship system development process. * Definitions of the different aspects of ship survivability, in order to suggest a coordinated and coherent understanding of their relationships. * A discussion of the value of making survivability considerations an integral part of the ship design philosophy, to ensure a requirements‐based systems approach to all of the ship's required attributes, including survivability.
