Abstract
Operational Research was tasked to provide support for the Frigate LIfe Extension (FELEX) Program. A hierarchical model was created using the Operaitonal Research H-FRAME software. This model demonstrates the links from potential FELEX upgrades to various dimensions of performance. These performance dimensions are then linked to warfare areas, which are then linked to explicit operational scenarios. By providing a measure for each of these linkages, the impact upon the performance of the frigate in a number of scenarios can be visualized for each upgrade. The final result of this project is not an authoritative measure of upgrade impact. Rather, it is an organized collection of the accumulation of expert opinion. This report demonstrates the areas where each upgrade has an impact, and providing some initial measure of the extent of this impact. The information can be used in providing a direction for future study, or to help justify decisions that have been made.
