Sophisticated reconnaissance systems often must trade reliability for high operational performance. The resulting increased maintenance requirements dictate a more comprehensive maintainability program to insure system availability. To improve efficiency and lessen reliance on human performance, advanced maintainability concepts must be implemented beginning at design onset to insure operational success after system deployment.
