Abstract:

The reliability program for the Radio Set ANARC-34 is analyzed. The ANARC-34 is an airborne ultra high frequency UHF command communications set, which can be preset to any 20 of 1750 frequencies between 225.0 and 399.9 megacycles. The factors which resulted in this program being initiated are determined. A failure distribution model and reliability function are derived for each subsystem. The models show that the distribution of failures is exponential. The areas of reliability organizations, reliability reports, and procurement documents are analyzed. An analysis is made of the reliability requirements established by this program with respect to those established by MIL-R27542. This analysis shows that the present requirements do not insure an operationally reliable system. Recommendations are made for improving the overall reliability program. Author
