Arn-118 Tacan Reliability Triples Goal
Cedar Rapids, Iowa—U. S. Air Force/Collins Avionics-developed AN/ARN-118 microtacan navigation set is demonstrating a field reliability that is more than three times the figure specified in the contract. Unlike most airborne avionics equipment, where in-use reliability is significantly lower than that achieved during factory qualification tests, the ARN-118 is exhibiting an operational reliability that is almost twice the 1,000-hr. figure obtained in earlier qualification tests.
