Abstract:

Space and defense systems require the highest levels of functional performance in order to ensure technical superiority for US forces, but at the same time, levels of reliability exceeding those of commercial systems are required. These two requirements are often in conflict, as the most modern and highest performance devices do not have extensive operational histories upon which reliability models can be built. Thus, it is important to develop more predictive reliability models for advanced technologies, based on physical understanding of the failure mechanisms.
