Abstract:

Following factory production and check-out, tactical missiles of today are shipped directly to tactical units where they are stored for extended periods of time as a part of our war reserve material. Both a pre-storage test and a periodic surveillance test are typically performed using automated test equipment ATE to keep the reliability of the inventory above some threshold. This report improves the efficiency of these test programs by 1 tabulating the ATE diagnostic error probabilities required to establish an initial inventory reliability and 2 tabulating the sample proportions required to keep the reliability above some threshold for ten years of storage.
