Abstract:

This reliability verification test program was designed and performed to achieve three goals. 1 Estimate the reliability of the Mod III B equipment 2 Derive information from which this reliability could be further improved 3 Provide a feasibility study of this method of reliability measurement. Six systems were tested under carefully controlled laboratory conditions to simulate exposure to a typical pattern of pre-flight experience. Having thus been conditioned to typical pre-flight status, each system was then subjected to repeated cycles of the simulated conditions of countdown and flight until failure occurred. The report details the test procedures and presents the significant failure and operating time data accumulated. Data is evaluated in terms of both the statistical model and equipment performance. Failure analysis and corrective follow-up are discussed. The reliability estimate obtained from this program exceeds specified requirements and shows excellent correlation with field experience.
