This exploratory analysis attempts to quantify the magnitude of cost growth in weapon system programs, and identify factors affecting cost growth.

The study revealed that cost estimates are systematically biased toward underestimation, resulting in an average program cost growth of 20%.Cited by: An Analysis of Weapon System Cost Growth Author: Jeffrey A.

The literature suggests that scholars know little about the underlying factors affecting cooperative performance. A comprehensive literature review was conducted to establish the possible effects of key factors on the performance of international technological cooperation, and the possible relations between key factors.5/5(1).

Weapons system, any integrated system, usually computerized, for the control and operation of weapons of a particular kind. Intercontinental ballistic missiles, long-range bombers, and antiballistic missiles are the weaponry of the strategic weapons system (q.v.).

Guided missiles operating at. A method of estimating cost inputs for weapon-systems analyses is discussed. The major characteristics of the method are (1) Total cost concept, which provides for accumulation of “support” as well as “direct” costs to the tactical unit of capability (e.g., wing or squadron in the case of the Air Force) (2) Distinction between investment and annual operating costs (3) Incremental Cited by: 6.

A confounding factor was that ratios of military value to the economic cost of weapon systems were also on an upward trend. To complicate matters, value-to-cost ratios of different weapon systems most likely rose at different rates, implying incentives to substitute among them. Substitution would have been limited, however, by further factors.

The multitude of additional factors considered in the second step is detailed in the methodology below. The exact procedure for the second step depends on the category of weapon system or.Nuclear fallout is the residual radioactive material propelled into the upper atmosphere following a nuclear blast, so called because it "falls out" of the sky after the explosion and the shock wave has passed.

It commonly refers to the radioactive dust and ash created when a nuclear weapon explodes. The amount and spread of fallout is a product of the size of the weapon and the altitude at.
