This report presents a model for performing reliability analyses of airfield lighting systems. A set of consecutive coefficients was developed to account for system failure criteria which include random light outages, consecutive light outages, and consecutive light bar failures. Probability theory and simulation techniques are used with the consecutive coefficients to determine system reliability. A computerized version of the model was used in a sensitivity analysis to determine the effect on system reliability of parameters such as unit reliability, system configuration, maintenance strategy, and unit performance characteristics.
