Abstract : The primary program effort was directed toward a quantitative evaluation of reliability, availability, safety and human factors for airborne systems. Since a number of considerations associated with Category III landing problems presently defy quantification, an appendix has been developed to investigate in general these considerations. The reliability analysis presented in Volume I has required a large and varied number of calculations. Appendices have been developed to present examples of the manner in which these calculations were effected. Also presented is a discussion of a proposed two channel system exhibiting a fail operative capability, which is contrary to the fail passive characteristics of a two channel system assumed in Volume I. During this program, a considerable amount of research was conducted to provide a basis for the development of a quantiative human error prediction procedure. The results of this research is presented in appendices covering general human factors considerations associated with Category III systems and an analysis of accident data which was conducted to investigate human error characteristics of aircraft accidents.
