System Survivability Key Performance Parameter (KPP) (Mandatory KPP)
DAU GLOSSARY DEFINITION
A mandatory KPP intended to promote the development of critical warfighter capabilities that can survive kinetic (i.e., traditional, non-traditional, and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (including Electromagnetic Pulse )) and non-kinetic (cyber and Electromagnetic Spectrum)) threats across domains and applicable environments including space. The SS KPP ensures that systems are designed to enable critical warfighter capabilities that can prevent, mitigate, and recover from adversarial threats or from detrimental environmental conditions. The primary objective is to protect warfighter systems and promote system survivability within the full spectrum of operating environments.
The System Survivability KPP is intended to promote the development of critical warfighter capability that can survive kinetic (i.e., traditional, non-traditional, and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN)) and non-kinetic (cyber and electromagnetic spectrum (EMS)) threats across domains and applicable environment including space. The System Survivability KPP supports three system oriented objectives: prevention, mitigation in tactically relevant time, and recovery from threats and fires.
The System Survivability KPP has focus elements for endorsement: Kinetic Survivability, Cyber Survivability, and EMS Survivability
Three mandatory elements are included in the System Survivability KPP regarding Cyber Survivability:
- Cyber Survivability Risk Category (CSRC) identification,
- Exemplar language in the Capability Development Document (CDD) (tailored for an Information Systems (IS-CDD)), and
- Cyber Survivability Pillars (Prevent, Mitigate, and Recover from Cyber Attacks) and associated Cyber Survivability Attributes (CSAs)
The Manual for the Operation of the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) requires establishment of KPPs. The manual can be found at the Requirements Management Community of Practice via the link in the "Communities" section below.
