CASCOM and AMSAA met with supporting military and civilian calibration personnel during each unit visit to verify calibration workloads and TMDE use.
During the site visits, AMSAA and CASCOM confirmed and validated electronic test equipment usage for all of the BCT types.
AMSAA collects data from imbedded onboard sensors and added sensors, including the data bus, GPS, and terrain sensor.
Although AMSAA is able to use a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) system to collect data in the test environment, the system must be militarized for the intheater environment.
One use of analysis in logistics has been AMSAA FSB's deployment of analysts to Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan.
The data were collected by AMSAA analysts and compared to Army Public Health Command data showing that temperatures in Strykers could exceed those the human body could withstand.
In addition to performing analytical studies, AMSAA is the sole provider of certified systems performance data for all Army analytical studies.
One M&S tool developed and used by AMSAA for ISR studies is the Fusion Oriented C4ISR Utility Simulation (FOCUS) which represents individual dismounted Soldiers, air platforms, ground platforms, and their associated sensors.
AMSAA developed the software scorecard to complement its existing hardware reliability portfolio and facilitate an increasing software reliability workload.
Bernreuther is an operations research analyst at AMSAA Reliability Branch at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.
Reliability Scorecard contains 40 elements grouped into eight critical categories.
PM2 reliability growth planning curve sets a much better expectation for what reliability values should be achieved as part of the system development process.
