Abstract : The aim of this program was to prove the feasibility of providing field instrumentation capable of measuring the rate of degradation of performance in individual electronic devices. The major work accomplished was as follows: (1) selection of the type of equipment to be analyzed and instrumentation for the tests to be performed, (2) analysis of the instrumentation selected for performing the measurement required, (3) analysis of the mathematical approach to be utilized, (4) correlation of computer output with equipment performance, and (5) analyzing the different approaches used for accuracy of prediction.
