This report summarizes the work accomplished by ARINC Research Corporation to provide engineering support for the Cargo Aircraft Minelaying CAML System Advanced Development effort. The work included reliability, maintainability, and cost analysis. Task 1 encompassed the review of Lockheed- Georgia reliability, maintainability, and cost deliverables for the CAML contract. The deliverables were compared with similar deliverables for other successful mine programs on the basis of ARINC Research Corporations previous experience in program reliability, maintainability, and cost monitoring. Task 2 was a cost analysis of the CAML system. We assisted in the development of the CAML life-cycle-cost estimates by developing cost methodology, collecting pertinent cost data, analyzing the data, identifying problem areas and additional data requirements, and establishing an acquisition-cost estimate. Task 3 included reliability, maintainability, and cost evaluations for the CAML design. We also evaluated the CAML design for conformance to specified plans and programs. We attended formal design reviews reviewed drawings reviewed parts applications and performed reliability, maintainability, and cost analyses as required to assess program progress and conformance to requirements. Task 4 consisted of the development of recommended reliability, maintainability, and cost requirements for the upcoming CAML Engineering Development phase.
