Paper Abstract

Analytic models of technology development risk allow the use of powerful numerical optimization techniques earlier than usual in the design of advanced systems. Goal programming is used to find preliminary designs with the best performance-to-cost ratio for a given development risk budget. The advanced technologies that are allocated the greatest portions of this risk budget are the most critical. The application of this approach to space-based infrared step-stare sensors is discussed.
