MetadataShow full item record
This research provides a qualitative analysis of the logistics impacts, effects, and sustainment challenges presented to the Space Based Space Surveillance Block 10 System. Two large program changes were the focus of this study: a change in operations concept from a contractor operated to a USG/Blue Suit operated system and a change in system security level. The qualitative analysis/case study was conducted using the 10 core Product Support Elements (PSEs) as outlined in the Defense Acquisition University's Integrated Product Support Element Guidebook. Findings presented that all 10 of the PSEs were affected, with 6 of the 10 core PSEs requiring substantial adjustment. Manpower and Personnel was arguably the PSE most affected by both system changes.
