Requirement verification and Systems Engineering Technical Review (SETR) on a Commercial Derivative Aircraft (CDA) program

MetadataShow full item record
The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) systems engineering technical review (SETR) process does not acknowledge commercial documentation of military commercial derivative aircraft (CDA) programs. The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) type certificate (TC) process is for airworthiness only, but is extensive. This thesis compares the NAVAIR SETR timeline to the FAA TC process by phase. The majority of the FAA TC process effort occurs in the implementation phase, which maps to test readiness review (TRR), flight readiness review (FRR), functional configuration audit (FCA), and system verification review (SVR). These events assess requirement verification planning and results, inclusive of airworthiness and performance requirements. The products of this thesis are diagrams mapping the commercial documents of the implementation phase to the SETR entrance criteria of these events. Out of 30 evaluated SETR entrance criteria, 22 map to FAA elements. A case study of a military CDA program, the Presidential Helicopter Replacement Program, evaluates the timeline comparison and validates applicability of the mapping diagrams. Mapping of the remaining SETR events would enable further benefits. A reinstatement and rewrite of the cancelled NAVAIRINST 13100.15, Engineering Technical Review of Commercial-Derivative Aircraft Programs, would restore NAVAIR policy on supporting military CDA programs and their efficiencies with SETR.
