To design and evaluate a vehicular system that meets a new requirement to support soldiers conducting military operations in Iraq. Soldiers fighting in Iraq need the most modern equipment that will allow them to remain at a safe distances while searching for and engaging the enemy. At the research laboratory for soldiers, the director tasked each division chief to assemble a team of engineers in order to develop and verify the AUGS as a suitable design option.
No immediate solution is available to soldiers to conduct standoff surveillance, detect mines and engage the enemy using remote controls. The AUGS has been chosen as a possible solution. The AUGS must excel in both reliability and cost in order to maximize the number of continuous operating hours. Army guidance dictates that all equipment must be capable of operating in the most remote locations and across a variety of environments.
First two levels provided by PMO, 3rd level provide by contractor.
Conversion into Percentages
Only analyzing on achieving the Goal of 1,500 Watts.
Rs(t) = (Rmine detection)*(Rcommunication)*(RC4 interoperability)*(RGPS tracking of jammer)*(Rpower support)
Rs(t) = (.999) * (.796) * (.99) * (.861) * (.719) = .487 (Total AUGS Reliability)
Updated reliability estimates:
Rcommunication = 1 – (1-e –(.000119*1200))(1-e –(.000119*1200))= .958
RGPS tracking of jammer = 1 – (1-e –(.000586*256))(1-e –(.000586*256))= .981
Updated AUGS reliability using equation (3) again after parallel models already applied:
Rs(t) (series and parallel models) = (.999) * (.958) * (.99) * (.981) * (.719) = .668
(Total AUGS Reliability with additional SINCGARS Radio and GPS Tracker)
