This thesis provides a cost benefit analysis of installing a Recovery Exercise Module (REM ) in a Cruise Missile for an Operational Test Launch. Topics considered include: Should the Cruise Missile Project Office (CMPO) continue development of a new redesigned REM; should all test missiles be intentionally destroyed or should the REM be utilized; can the Non-Tactical Instrumentation Kit (NTIK), being developed for the Air Force be a cost effective test procedure for the Sea Launched Cruise Missile? The conclusion that was reached is that the CMPO should maintain use of the current REM model and cancel plans to redesign the REM. Additionally, REM production and test missile refurbishment should be competed, between several contractors. b e twee n sev e ral
