Abstract : An assessment was made of the effect an improved bearing in the G-200 gyroscope would have on the reliability and logistic support costs of the LN-12 inertial navigation system. The report includes detailed descriptions of two repair process models, one for the G-200 gyroscope, and the other for the LN-12 inertial platform. A description is also given of a field flow model. Detailed economic results and forecasts are given. Thirteen references are cited in a bibliography. (Author)
