Abstract : Space systems and satellite communications are now a reality. As these systems become more important to our military missions, we must ensure we have reliable equipment. The role of reliability is not just the responsibility of the project reliability engineer. The program manager and the user must understand the importance of the reliability program. The designers and users must have a mutual understanding of the program goals. If the engineer is the only one who can understand the system, the user will not agree it is what is needed and the program manager will not support the funding requirement. (Author)
