System Threat Assessment Report

A System Threat Assessment Report (STAR) provides an assessment of a potential adversary’s ability to neutralize or degrade a system underdevelopment. It summarizes the approved threat for combat and materiel developers, developmental and operational testers, and evaluators for all systems. The STAR is a statutory requirement to support policy makers and decision makers in Congress, OSD, and service RDA and T&E communities throughout a program’s life cycle.  

The STAR is the primary threat reference used in preparation of threat portions of JCIDS documents and Test & Evaluation Master Plan (TEMP), or TTSPs. The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) provides validation for System Threat Assessment Reports to support Acquisition Category (ACAT) ID/ Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAP). DoD Instruction 5000.02 requires that MDAPs have a validated STAR in place at Milestones B and C.  

Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Instruction 5000.002 describes STAR elements and format.  

- The assessment should be kept current and validated throughout the acquisition process.
