Abstract:

Models were developed for prediction of baseline reliability characteristics of notional conceptual Navy fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft. Each model consists of a set of mathematical equations relating two- digit Work Unit Code subsystem Mean Flight Hours Between Failures MFHBF to aircraft designperformance parameters. The prediction equations were derived using MFHBF data and aircraft designperformance parameters from each of 43 representative historical Navy aircraft. Candidate predictor variables consisted of 101 designperformance parameters for fixed wing aircraft and 89 design performance parameters for rotary wing aircraft. A summary of development of the baseline reliability prediction models is presented in Volume I. The models and application procedure are contained in Part I of Volume II, Users Guide, while data base development, technical approach, and model validation appear in Part II.
