As part of an ongoing Core Analysis Task (CAT), the CSIAC successfully completed the static testing of an Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Experimentation System (AUES) for autonomous UAS Command and Control (C2). In addition, the CSIAC team also completed pilot training in preparation for the live flight testing of the Lockheed Martin Desert Hawk… Read More
There is a long standing discussion on how best to calculate the lower and upper confidence bounds on the Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) for a time-truncated test (Type I Censoring) assuming that the times between failure are exponentially distributed (constant failure rate). This Reliability Que discusses the use of the Chi-Square distribution for confidence… Read More
Quanterion Announces the 2016 Edition of the Failure Mode / Mechanism Distributions (FMD-2016) Publication
FMD-2016 contains field failure mode and mechanism distribution data on a variety of electrical, mechanical, and electromechanical parts and assemblies. This data can be used to assist in the performance of reliability analyses and assessments such as Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA).
Compared to its predecessor FMD-2013, FMD-2016… Read More
Quanterion attended MILCOM 2015 in Tampa Florida, the premier international conference for military communications, and chaired the conference’s Secure UAS Communications Technical Panel. Dr. Paul Losiewicz, Quanterion’s Senior Scientific Advisor, organized and moderated the panel discussion which addressed communications security as it relates to the command and control (C2) of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). The… Read More
This Reliability Que will discuss an example of how Weibull analysis qualitative results showing a constant failure rate affect the maintenance planning process. The qualitative results can be utilized to quantitatively drive the decision-making process in Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) programs.
As defined in NAVAIR 00-25-403, “Guidelines for the Naval Aviation Reliability-Centered Maintenance Process”, RCM… Read More
This Reliability Que will discuss an example of how Weibull analysis qualitative results showing early failures (Infant Mortality) can be utilized to quantitatively drive the decision making process in Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) programs.
As defined in NAVAIR 00-25-403, “Guidelines for the Naval Aviation Reliability-Centered Maintenance Process”, RCM is “an analytical process to determine appropriate… Read More
