Abstract:

The report examines the basic philosophy, general objectives, and definition of tasks of the HERO program. It is believed that efforts to solve the HERO problem have been stultified by adherence to a doctrine of absolutism in which HERO has been regarded more as a safety program than a means for contributing to the Navys mission. The report emphasizes the importance of reliability concepts for the stated objectives, and proposes a breakdown of the general problem into four phases, together with a realignment of responsibilities based on this division.
