Abstract:

This report is the result of an attempt to develop a methodology for estimating the costs involved in developing airborne electronic equipment. Although much of the report is general and, therefore, applicable to any class of airborne electronic equipment, the research effort itself was restricted to fire control equipments. All of the cost elements analyzed showa very marked trend of increasing with equipment weight. The trend is fairly consistent with the major exception of reliability costs. It is suspected that these costs are influenced to a high degree by the exact nature of the equipment involved. The required mean time between failures certainly has an effect upon this cost element although the exact nature of the effect is not evident from the data.
