2. Node numbers

3 Durations

4 Earliest / Latest start and finish for each activity

5 Float for each activity

6 Major milestones***

7 Total time to complete this delivery order

***Note[3]: A milestone is a significant point in the project. Highlighted at the event (node), a milestone is often identified after the completion of a major event (review, submission of a significant deliverable, completion of a major test/demonstration, …). It is a point where the Project Manager assesses the current state of the project before progressing forward.

Background reference (for time durations of CPN)

1. Perform independent research on each of the five candidate IR sensors (2 weeks each for the Red-Eye series, one week each for the others).

2. Perform a trade study to down select to two IR sensor candidates (1.5 weeks).

3. Develop performance models for both IR sensor candidate sensors (6 weeks each). Note: These should be done separately but can be accomplished in parallel.

4. Develop a CONOPS to determine how IR / optical sensors are to be used on the X-65B (8 weeks).

5. Use the CONOPS and IR sensor performance models to develop / run independent performance simulations (4 weeks each). Note: These should be done separately but can be accomplished in parallel.

6. Use the outcome of your simulations as an input for a technical review to down select to a single IR sensor (preparations – 2 weeks).

7. Hold the IR sensor review and down select to a single IR sensor (1 day)

8. Perform research on the Eagle-Eye 2000® optical sensor (4 weeks).

9. Develop a performance model for the Eagle-Eye 2000® (2 weeks).

10. Update the performance model for the Tiger-Eye 1000® optical sensor (1 day).

11. Use the CONOPS and performance models to develop / run independent performance simulations (Tiger-Eye 1000® – 2 weeks, Eagle-Eye 2000® – 5 weeks)

12. Use the outcome of your simulations as an input for a technical review to down select to a single optical sensor (preparations – 2 weeks).

13. Hold the optical sensor review and down select to a single optical sensor (1 day). Please note that the IR sensor review and optical sensor review must be held separately but can occur in parallel.

14. Design a common prototype hardware integration package to allow the selected IR / optical sensor to be mounted in the X65B. This mounting package must be designed in such a way to mount either the selected IR or optical sensor (dual use) (10 weeks). Note: This includes the development of a prototype to be used for hardware integration package testing (item15).

15. Test the hardware integration package and make required modifications (2 weeks).

16. Build three hardware integration packages (2 weeks total)

. 17. Design software to integrate the selected IR sensor with the X-65B mission computer (12 weeks).

18. Code IR sensor integration software (4 weeks).

19. Perform IR sensor software integration testing with the IR sensor and the X-65B simulator (3 weeks).

20. Design software to integrate the selected optical sensor with the X-65B mission computer (13 weeks).

21. Code optical sensor integration software (2 weeks).

22. Perform optical sensor software integration testing with the optical sensor and the X-65B simulator (3 weeks).

23. Install IR and optical sensors on the X-65B (2 days each – this can be done simultaneously, if required)

. 24. Perform final IR payload integration testing with the X-65B aircraft and make required changes (2 weeks).

25. Perform final optical payload integration testing with the X-65B aircraft and make required changes (2 weeks).

26. Develop test plan for X-65B live sensor testing (sensor independent – not dependent on selected sensors) (12 weeks).

27. Using the test plan, perform required hazard / safety analysis (3 weeks).

28. After completing the hazard / safety analysis, attain live sensor testing approval (6 weeks).

29. Perform X-65B live sensor tests (both sensors simultaneously) (2 weeks).

30. Develop live demonstration* plan, based on the outcome of the X-65B live sensor tests (1 week).

31. Make final changes to sensor payload configurations, based on live sensor tests (2 weeks).

32. Hold live demonstration* review (everything must be ready before this review occurs) (2 days).

33. Perform a practice series of dry run demos in preparation for the formal demonstration* (1 week).

34. *Perform live sensor demonstration (1 day).

35. Perform “hot wash” meeting after demonstration (1 day).

36. Write final close-out report, based on “hot wash” meeting (1 week).
