Survivability has always been a main concern in naval warfare. The objectives of this thesis are to analyze the combat survivability components of a surface ship, and to look at the how each of the components design and implementation would affect the overall survivability of the ship. This thesis will take an overview look on survivability with regards to the threats that todays warships would be facing, and the vulnerability and susceptibility reduction techniques, designs and implementations. The main focus of the thesis would be on susceptibility reduction, through signature management, threat warnings, threat suppressions, tactics and integrated networks. Finally, this thesis would illustrate the effects of applying the survivability enhancement techniques in a possible engagement scenario. As the techniques involved many cross-discipline fields in engineering, this thesis also aims to prepare a foundation for the development of a naval survivability discipline in NPS for the future.
