dc.description.abstractThis thesis is a case study of the extent to which a series of factors influenced development of the U.S. Army Target Acquisition Designation System/Pilot Night Vision System (TADS/PNVS). This study is one of a series being prepared under an ongoing research effort sponsored by Headquarters U.S. Army Material Command (AMC). These studies will look at various weapon systems that participated in Operation Desert Storm (ODS) and will study the effectiveness of their Development Strategies, for the purpose of later comparing system effectiveness in ODS. The TADS/PNVS was developed for the AH-64A Apache Helicopter, as a sighting system for the Hellfire missile system. This case study focuses on the system's three critical technologies, evaluates their technical maturity at various stages versus Technology Readiness Levels, and analyzes how that affected the later development and testing. The study also highlights funding stability, user involvement, integrated product teams, and testing strategies. The thesis focuses particular attention on testing, and whether testing of the TADS/PNVS system was sufficient and timely during development.en_US
