The purpose of this thesis is to develop a Survivability and Lethality Assessment Center (SLAC) at the Naval Postgraduate School. Students, faculty, and staff from many different curricula can use the SLAC for thesis research, for validating their own computer codes, and for classroom instruction. The models for the SLAC were obtained from the Survivability/ Vulnerability Information Analysis Center (SURVIAC), Teledyne Brown Engineering, Menton, Inc (for Grumman A/C Systems Advanced Programs), and from the Physics Department at the Naval Postgraduate School. Computer Systems in the SLAC include two SUN SPARC-1O Workstations, one Silicon Graphics Indigo, eight VAX63iO terminals with four graphics display consoles, eight IBM compatible computers, and two Macintosh computers. The SLAC now contains 24 models for running simulations. The SLAC is a comprehensive, user-friendly center for individuals or groups that need to use it The security processing, computer account set-up, and documentation have all been streamlined to facilitate ease of use. Students, faculty, and staff should have no difficulty utilizing the SLAC.
