Abstract:

The HARDMAN methodology is designed to assess the human resource requirements early in the weapon system acquisition process. In this case, the methodology was applied to the family of radios known as SINCGARS Single Channel Ground-Airborne Radio System. At the time of the study, SINCGARS was approaching the Full-Scale Development phase, with 2 contractors in competition. Their proposed systems were compared with a composite baseline comparison reference system. The systems manpower, personnel and training requirements were compared. Based on RAM data, the contractors MPT figures showed a significant reduction from the figures derived for the baseline comparison system. Differences between the two contractors were relatively small. Impact and some tradeoff analyses were hindered by data access problems. Tactical radios, Manpower and personnel requirements analysis, Impact and tradeoff analysis, Human resource sensitivity, Training requirements analysis, Human Resources in LCSMM, Logistics Analyses.
