A Component Reliability Model for Bomb Fuze Mk 344 Mod 1 and Mk 376 Mod 0,
NAVAL SURFACE WEAPONS CENTER WHITE OAK LAB SILVER SPRING MD
Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of this report is to present a general reliability model for either the Mk 344 Mod 1 or Mk 376 Mod 0 fuze, taking into account the interrelations among the components in the actual schematic of the fuze. Using recent data, provided by Fairchild Defense Products, a reliability model was designed which takes into account component failures. The reliability and confidence levels predicted by this model are in complete agreement with those obtained from simulated test drop data on total number of successful firings. Author
