An economic analysis of life cycle military manpower maintenance and training requirements in Avionics minicomputer and microcomputer systems.
Genovese, Dennis Harry
MetadataShow full item record
The dramatic advances within the electronics industry over the last few decades have brought about several equally effective computer design alternatives for use in military avionics systems. This report is an attempt to examine the maintenance personnel and training Life Cycle Costs associated with three of these alternatives; (1) Consolidated Mission Computer, (2) Federated Homogeneous Computer System, and (3) Federated Heterogeneous Computer System. The computations indicate that the Federated Homogeneous System is the most cost effective alternative. • This report is intended as an input to the research being conducted by LCDR James Buttinger and Associate Professor Uno Kodres for the Naval Weapons Center, China Lake, titled "A Study of Alternatives for VSTOL Computer Systems."
