Radar Test Case- Blue Kestrel

This test case is based on the Radar Electronic System Template 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the Blue Kestrel. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses production schedule dates and quantities of the Blue Kestrel program. No attempt has been made to differentiate among the various models of the Blue Kestrel nor has any attempt been made to simulate the mutilple production lots of the program. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the radar electronic system template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known radar program.
