This thesis contains an analysis of the last five years of Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW) Weapon System Accuracy Trial (WSAT) data from both the Atlantic and Pacific fleet. The analysis is conducted in an effort to provide recommendations to be applied toward future evolution of the ASW Test Program for surface ships. A statistical chi-square test is conducted on fleet and Navy wide data to determine which ASW combat system material categories are most prone to degradation. Additionally, a critical examination of the existing WSAT data base is provided with an aim toward promoting future statistical analysis. Results of this thesis indicate that degradation to weapons delivery systems like torpedo tubes and ASROC launchers is statistically more significant than the other WSAT test categories. The thesis also recommends new ways to adapt the existing WSAT data base to conduct more informative inspections of existing and new construction ships.
