Abstract : This document is intended to summarize the Certified Round Concept as applied to Improved HAWK missile and to provide a detailed description of the Improved HAWK Stockpile Reliability Program. The Stockpile Reliability Program for the Improved HAWK missile is utilized to measure and maintain the reliability of Improved HAWK missiles after deployment and is essential to the implementation of the Certified Round Concept by tactical users. It provides for annual evaluation and recertification of deployed missiles and provides the equipment, skills, and facilities required to perform the corrective actions to maintain the reliability of the certified round after it is deployed. This document further defines the enhancements made to the missile, the problems which have been encountered and associated corrective actions during the first 8 years of deployment and a general description of the program and implementation plans deemed appropriate to complete the life cycle through 1990.
