Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to provide a feasibility assessment and Rough Order of Magnitude ROM cost of using a 3rd partys approach for eliminating microcircuit part obsolescence on a printed wiring board, which was designed by a cognizant JTIDS contractor. The results of this study are to be used in supporting future acquisition strategies e.g., organic vs contractor repair for JTIDS life cycle sustainment. As a follow-up sequel to the initial studies, the overall benefits, risks and impacts associated with the we of Very High Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language VHDL as a Diminishing Manufacturing Sources DMS alternative for the chosen JTIDS board or other military applications was evaluated. Although a ROM cost was provided for one of the options developed it is not contained within this final report but was provided to the JTIDS Program Office for their use.
