2 What Studies Confirm ?
3 What Studies Could Not Ascertain ? Exact impact of Weather Visibility. Wind, Storms, Hail, Snow. Clouds, Fog, Mist. Temperature and humidity. Severe weather. Illumination and obstructions to vision. Exact impact of Terrain High Altitude Mountain Desert Riverine Jungle
4 Environmental Effects On Equipment Management Terrain Analysis would give Bottlenecks Likely systems to be impacted Wheels, suspension, NVDs, Optics, Barrels, Communication, Power packs etc Pneumatic, Hydraulic, Electrical etc Fault probability – Leaks, Jams, Filters, Dry solders, Lubrication, etc Would impact Employment – degraded performance/ranges, calibration, attenuation, etc Mission availability & recycle time Routine maintenance tasks - before, during, and after operation Advisories Periodical maintenance tasks - mission availability, recycle time, oils & lubs Positioning of Maintenance & Recovery teams Stocking of spares, tools etc Crew carried spares Training of Crew & Maintainers
5 Environment Impacts RAM Reliability. Resistance to failure under stated conditions for a specified period of time. Reliability Hazard analysis, Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), Fault tree analysis (FTA), Material Stress and Wear calculations, Fatigue and Creep analysis, Finite Element Analysis, Reliability Prediction, Thermal (Stress) analysis, Corrosion Analysis Simulating these correctly need realistic Geoint parameters. Availability. Available for specified mission in Area of Operations for a specified period of time. Maintainability. Maintainable during the mission within a specified period of time. Geo spatial data gets collated over Equipment Lifecycle of 2-3 decades
