Abstract : The report presents the results of a five-month study program on the proposed Category III ILS ground system. The primary program effort was directed to the evaluation and adequacy of Reliability, Availability, Safety, Cost Effectiveness, Redundancy and Monitoring. Included in the report is the format and summary of several computer programs utilizing a basic reliability model of the complete ground system. From these programs data was generated to depict the effect of various levels of redundancy and component reliability on system reliability and availability. Data is also presented to depict the combined effect of Mean-Time-Between-Failure and Mean-Time-to-Restore on availability and the resulting impact on maintenance requirements. The potential cost increments incurred from loss of Availability as a result of various levels of unreliability in terms of maintenance and user loss is presented for several levels of ILS weather conditions. A proposed program is included for the inclusion of guaranteed reliability requirements in the procurement of ILS ground system somponents. (Author)
