Reliability of airborne electronic equipment is studied in detail. Discussed are 1 the need for reliability in airborne electronic equipment, 2 methods used to obtain reliability of airborne electronic equipment, 3 the effects of reliability of airborne electronic equipment upon logistics requirements, and 4 furure design of airborne electronic equipments, the anticipated reliability of future equipments, and the effects of future design and reliability upon logistics requirements. This thesis presents field failure data on one item of airborne electronic equipment, the ANARC-90 Ultra High Frequency Radio Set, currently in use only in the C-141A. The thesis draws conclusions relating to the varied methods by which mean time between failure is computed for airborne electronic equipment and the present method employed throughout Air Force Logistics Command by which demands for initial spares provisioning are predicted.
