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 from each of 43 representative historical Navy aircraft. Candidate predictor variables consisted of 101 design performance parameters for fixed wing aircraft and 89 designperformance parameters for rotary wing aircraft. This report contains two volumes Volume I - Executive Summary and Volume II - Users Guide and Model Development. A summary of development of the baseline reliability prediction models is presented in Volume 1. The models and application procedure are contained in Part I of Volume 2. Users Guide, while data base development, technical approach, and model validation in Part 2.
