  10. Weapon Inspection Sustainment and Recording Device (WISARD)

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T001

    The process by which weapon systems go from point of manufacture to field usage is not a simple one. Devices can be held in storage for decades before use, and they can be subjected to significant and potentially damaging environmental conditions throughout the systems lifecycle. Latent and intermittent failures occur, and it is difficult to detect these malfunctions without actively monitoring ...
