Abstract : The volume is a result of the investigation performed in Volume I 'Document Deficiency Analysis' of this report, which identifies deficiencies in military specifications and standards that have impact in reliability and maintainability of U.S. Army helicopters. The volume provides supplementary information to each deficient document relating to design requirements, qualification testing, and quality assurance. The supplementary information to offset the most prevalent deficiencies were addressed to helicopter mission design requirements which relate to environmental conditions, reliability and maintainability programs, and safety. Environmental testing and reliability and maintainability requirements were also addressed. This supplementary information may be used for future helicopter procurement purposes, or may eventually be incorporated into existing aircraft electrical systems documents. (Author)
