Abstract : The study discusses the statistical techniques of measuring high reliabilities; it introduces the quotient of inaccuracy of the measurement of reliability; it investigates the economic and experimental consequences of measuring high reliabilities with an acceptable accuracy; and it discusses the possiblities of meaningful specification for parts of guided missiles and space vehicles. Finally, an upper limit of space vehicle reliability is estimated on the basis of the achieved reliability of intercontinental ballistic missile types. (Author)
