Efforts were directed toward discussing the need for reliability test of mission support aero space ground equipment AGE such as checkout equipment. The discussions are aimed primarily at the sequential probability ratio SPR test for mean time between failure termed T in this paper determination when the distribution of failures can be assumed exponential. Other distributions are only mentioned. No specific check out equipment is considered. Summary tables and charts are included in several areas in the hope that they will prove useful in practice for selecting an acceptable SPR test. The following subjects are discussed considerations in setting acceptable test risks, conditions under which SPR tests are appropriate, the theory of SPR tests and the resulting relationships used in SPR tests of T, and the expected qualitative variations in an SPR test when different test parameters are varied.
