Experimental Weapons Tailored Test Case-32 MJ Rail Gun

This tailored test case is based on the Ordnance Systems 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the 32 MJ Rail Gun. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses schedule dates of the Rail Gun program. No attempt has been made to simulate the Rail Gun design heritage or quantities of spares, prototypes, and production units. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the experimental weapons template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known ordnance program.
