A monotonic, pointwise unbiased and uniformly consistent estimator for the survival function of failure time under the random censorship model is proposed. This estimator is closely related to the Kaplan-Meier, the Nelson-Aalen, and the reduced sample estimator. Large sample properties of the new estimator are discussed.
