A life cycle analysis of the potential role of commercial computer equipment in military trainers as applied to maritime patrol aviation
MetadataShow full item record
This project was initiated in an attempt to address the current training shortfall in the Maritime Patrol Aviation community,brought about by the collapse of the Soviet Union and subsequent reductions in U.S. military funding. Commercial personal computer equipment was investigated as a possible supplement to operational flights and existing training devices. A life cycle analysis was performed to thoroughly explore all stages of design, development, and implementation. System requirements were defined, and applied to a conceptual design. A new approach to hardware and software maintenance also was proposed. The report concludes with a program plan detailed enough to initiate an efficient acquisition program for the proposed training device.
