Abstract:

The report documents findings on the non-operating reliability of switches. Of 473 million part-hours, the best data shows a storage failure rate of 54 fit failures per billion hours with a one sided 90 percent confidence limit of 76 fit. No statistically significant difference was found among the various switch types with respect to storage failure rate. Recommendations include care to avoid particulate contamination and inclusion of oxygen in the fill gas for enclosed designs. The objective of this program is the development of non-operating storage reliability prediction and assurance techniques for missile materiel.
