An examination of the procurement cost of aircraft electronic systems. The results are based on the cost of ten fighter/interceptor avionic systems. The research follows two distinct approaches: (1) an attempt to relate the cost of individual electronic subsystems to their characteristics; and (2) an attempt to relate total airborne electronic equipment (or total avionic system) cost for aircraft performing similar missions (long-range, strategic, etc.) to aircraft design and performance characteristics. An examination of procurement costs of aircraft electronic systems based on cost data for ten fighter/interceptor avionic systems. The memorandum uses time and maximum speed as the explanatory variables.
