Abstract : This report has been prepared to summarize a test validation effort for an accelerated life testing model which uses a wide parametric Bayesian Analysis Methodology. Step stress testing was performed on seven (7) Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) Class 1 synthesizer detector, radio frequency assemblies. Failure-data and analyses are provided. The report addresses issues concerning how to demonstrate high reliability (Mean-Time- Between-Failure values of 10,000 hours or more) on procured Air Force systems without incurring excessive testing costs.
