TRL Considerations

  • Is system new or recap/upgrade with legacy documentation?

  • Does Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) exist? If not, how will critical technologies be determined?

  • What does “CRITICAL” technology mean to the system?

  • Is the objective of the system understood by key players including OSD representatives?

  • How do TRL definitions apply to specifics of system development?

UH-60M TRL Process

1 - Define “CRITICAL” technology.

- Those vehicle technologies, components, or subsystems whose success or failure most significantly affect the ability of a fully integrated UH-60M to meet Block 1 key performance parameters (KPPs) as identified by the ORD and System Performance Specification, AVNS-PRF-10002.

2 - Using WBS, identify critical technologies for UH-60M.

- Based on objectives of UH-60M Recap/Upgrade program, components of the WBS were selected as critical given improvements will be required in currently fielded UH-60 aircraft.

3 - Define TRL levels in relation to objectives of UH-60M.

7 Assigned to components which are currently

undergoing qualification testing for an Army rotorcraft

program but have not been fielded on the UH-60

platform except for qualification and testing.

8 Assigned to qualified components of other fielded

UH-60 systems (UH-60Q).

9 Assigned to components currently fielded on UH-60L

platform.

4 - Perform Assessment.

5 - Document results thoroughly.

- Detailed information is necessary.

- Focus on Spreadsheet which contains all relevant data.

- Use one item as example and obtain all documentation.

Manpower Requirements

The UH-60M Recap/Upgrade program consists of massive

amounts of legacy documentation, which may be 20 years old

and difficult to locate. Given this, the UH-60M TRL required:

One Engineer - 8 Weeks Develop, track, coordinate, brief

Two Engineers - 2 WeeksTrack data for UH-60

Other Programs - 1 WeekContact for info/data

File Clerk - 2 WeeksLocate, Copy Data

TOTAL: 520 HR Engineering

80 HR Clerk

Lessons Learned

  • DOD 5000.2 contains minimal guidance and definition of TRL Assessment requirements.

  • Establish POCs for involvement in process. Need coordination early to establish requirements for TRL Assessment. POCs must understand program objectives to achieve common results.

  • Do not underestimate time or manpower required.

  • TRL Assessment must be performed independently from Risk Assessment (required MS document) to capture essence of TRL Assessment.


Acat1d program

ACAT1D program

  • 5000 changed in between – TRL now a requirement

  • A lot of the components are legacy components, TRL didn’t make a lot of sense

  • Integrated master schedule

    • Process of mapping to WBS

    • 1500 lines

    • Assigned govt person for each activity on that line

    • Likelihood versus consequences

      • Software built for high, moderage

        • Cost, schedule, perform

        • 40 risk abatement plans (sekorsky)
