Abstract
QUANTIC INDUSTRIES, INC., HAS BEEN A MAJOR FORCE IN THE TRANSITION OF SAFE AND ARM (S&A) DEVICES FROM ALL-MECHANICAL OUT-OF-LINE TO ALL-ELECTRONIC IN-LINE. HOWEVER, IN SOME CASES, A HYBRID MIX OF ELECTRONICS AND MECHANISMS WOULD RESULT IN MORE EFFECTIVE (S&A) IN TERMS OF LIFE CYCLE COST AND/OR SIZE/WEIGHT WHILE STILL MEETING THE REQUIRED PERFORMANCE AND SAFETY/RELIABILITY REQUIREMENTS. IN ORDER TO SELECT THE BEST POSSIBLE SOLUTION FOR AN ADVANCED MISSILE S&A, THE AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES MUST BE EVALUATED AGAINST THE DESIRED ATTRIBUTES USING THE SYSTEM SPECIFIC CONSTRAINTS. SUCH A COMPREHENSIVE TRADE STUDY REQUIRES SEVERAL MAN-MONTHS OF EFFORT AS PROPOSED HEREIN. THE TRADE STUDY REQUIRES IDENTIFICATION OF BOTH SYSTEM AND PROGRAMMATIC CONSTRAINTS, POSTULATING GENERIC DESIGNS WHICH MIX AND MATCH ALL AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES WHICH COULD MEET THOSE CONSTRAINTS, AND EVALUATING THE COMMON ATTRIBUTES OF EACH DESIGN AGAINST EACH OTHER AND/OR A SPECIFIED BASELINE DESIGN TO SELECT THE BEST CANDIDATE(S) DESIGN. THE PROPOSAL PROVIDES AN EXAMPLE OF THE EVALUATION MATRIX WHICH WILL BE USED AND ONE SAMPLE POSTULATED DESIGN.
