Abstract : The primary purpose of this program is to develop design techniques, aimed at achieving long term reliability of aerospace electronic communications equipment, upon which the design and construction of future equipment of this type can be based. The reliability goal is 10 to 20 years mean-time-between-failure for transceiver operating in the 10 to 17 GC frequency range. Other program goals are the development of techniques to reduce the equipment size and weight. This report summarizes the accomplishments of the study and investigation phase of the program and outlines the intended design approach to be followed in the development of the feasibility model transceiver. A prediction of the performance characteristics of the model is included, along with recommendations for future engineering research. Problem areas are discussed and design tradeoffs evaluated.
