Abstract : The purpose of this analysis is to provide a high-level presentation of the issues of performance reliability, maintainability, availability (RMA), and survivability as they pertain to the procurement of commercial desk-top computers (DTCs) for mission critical application. The analysis will describe the basic characteristics of the Navy standard computer (AN/UYK-43) and a commercial DTC, the Hewlett-Packard HP-9020C. An overview of the MIL-STDs, MIL-SPECs, and MIL-HDBKs, that establish requirements for developing digital equipment that qualify for full-MIL designation is presented. Issues such as RMA and survivability are examined.
