Abstract : Reliability and maintainability (R&M) evaluations can be conducted during the initial flight test of new and modified aerospace systems. Newly developed equipment usually has only a fraction of the reliability needed. These evaluations, combined with extensive laboratory test efforts, are required to bring the system to an acceptable level of R&M performance. No flight time is normally dedicated to these R&M evaluations, but some ground time is required. Other unique required resources include trained R&M engineering personnel, R&M data, and data reduction capability. Results include identification of R&M deficiencies and measurement of R&M parameters.
