Abstract:

The Lightweight Doppler Navigation System LDNS Program is under the management of the U.S. Army NavigationControl NAVCON Systems Project Office at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. In December 1976, Singer Company-Kearfott Division was awarded the initial production contract that included the Reliability Improvement Warranty RIW terms and provisions. Prior to this contract effort, ARINC Research Corporation assisted the NAVCON Project Office during the Engineering Development ED phase of the LDNS Program and participated in the development of RIW terms and conditions of the Initial Production IP solicitation. Under the current contract effort, ARINC Research provided engineering assistance in defining the Defense Contract Administration Services Office DCASO and the manufacturers warranty responsibilities, in reviewing the contractor warranty data collection plan, and in developing LDNS field implementation plans. This report presents the results of these activities.
