Kill Vehicle Template

Customer Content

Author: PRICE® Research

Version: 158{16.0.6068.1}

Category: Templates

The PRICE Kill Vehicle template is constructed to the Work Breakdown Structure defined by the kill vehicle WBS proposed by the Missile Defense Agency, 9 April 2014, and by MIL-STD-881C, 3 October 2011. It is populated with input values representative of missile and spacecraft hardware, software, and operating specifications. The values are based upon the acquired PRICE Systems, LLC knowledge and data pertinent to specific spacecraft and missiles. That knowledge and data have been reduced to a single template, reduction accomplished through averaging and like statistical practices. This template can be used to create examples (called Template Test Cases) to illustrate Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) estimating of specific kill vehicles. However, PRICE templates are only intended as solid starting points for quality estimation. They require a degree of tailoring and adjustment to meet a specific instance for use. This could be due to differences in production units, prototypes, production schedules, architectures, weight distributions, and design heritage aspects between the template and test case. The attachments to the template project file contain the relevant MIL-STD-881C definitions for the template.
