Abstract
The Problem - A New Philosophy "Our supply of gold plate is not inexhaustible!" This and similiar statements characterize a new military attitude with regard to hardware acquisition. Limitations placed on military spending have forced us to reevaluate many of our policies in areas of weapons research, development, and acquisition. Efforts to achieve the greatest possible cost effectiveness have forced the military to abandon ideal system developments where attainment of performance was pursued with little consideration of cost. New policies require design to cost wherever possible and advocate use of off-the-shelf hardware as a means of checking sykrocketing development costs. Hardware applied to nonmission-essential roles is particularly subject to this new philosophy. Training equipment is one such application. This paper addresses the impact of these new policies as applied to development and acquisition of a video tape recorder (VTR) for an airborne recording system to be used as an instructional aid for training in the T-37B Aircraft.
