The effect of component redundancy upon aircraft combat survivability.
Kangalos, Angelo J.
MetadataShow full item record
Aircraft combat survivability has developed into a discipline of its own. This thesis presents a brief overview of the two integral parts of survivability, susceptibility and vulnerability. It examines the probability of an aircraft being killed given a single shot fired by the enemy. It further examines the redundancy of critical components and the effect redundancy has on the probability of kill of the aircraft. Several numerical examples are given. The thesis also examines the Antiaircraft Artillery Simulation Computer Program, and the modifications required in order to introduce component redundancy into it are developed.
