Research Institution
The MDA Stockpile Reliability Program for interceptor ordnance devices is deficient because there are not health monitoring and built-in tests of the electronic components and ordnances of such devices that can assess their reliability due to the exposure of such devices to lengthy periods of environmental effects. In order to compensate for these deficiencies a series of reliability engineering life extension testing techniques, functional testing of aged components, and analytical methods/tools could be use to increase the confidence level for the long term reliability of ordnance devices. Therefore, there is a need to develop technically sound and cost effective methods for life extension of ordnance devices. We plan the investigation of test methods and techniques already used by industry and/or presently under research for life extension of manufactured products or devices; and how such techniques can be applied to ordnance devices, and we plan the investigation of analytical tools used by industry and research institutions for the purpose of enhancing long term reliability of devices and how such analytical techniques can be used in ordnance devices.
