Abstract
This report documents an analytical model to assist in the planning of the Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) of the Marine Corps' prospective Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAAV). The model's emphasis is on suitability issues such as Operational Availability in an on-land (after ocean transit) mission region. The model predicts strong sensitivity to the form of an assumed distribution of times to vehicle breakdown, and hence recommends that appropriate test data be obtained to reveal that form (the mean alone is inadequate). Removal of design faults likely to cause early failures is encouraged. The AAAV design is for a relatively lightweight but techn...
