The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate the systems engineering effort by the Aviation Research and Development Activity (AVRADA), the Airborne Engineering Research Activity (AERA), and support contractor DOSS to install the Trimble Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver onto Army helicopter platforms. This study is an example of a successful systems engineering effort to install a non-developmental item (NDI) onto existing aircraft platforms in response to an urgent requirement created by the deployment of aircraft for Operation Desert Shield.
