Introduction
     This section is intended to impart a sense of our engineering, process, and design concepts to the customer during all phases of SkyFreighter product development.  It includes a description of our development cycles, our Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) elements, identify team members and responsibilities, top-level customer requirements (A-Specs), and Trade Studies to be performed in the Design, Test & Evaluation (DT&E) and Full Scale Engineering Development (FSED) phases (see below).
    The definitive customer requirements can only be determined in concert with the negotiated customer's needs, via trade studies that validate feasibility, cost, and technology issues under consideration. 
    Four different size / capability SkyFreighter Air Vehicles are currently in the concept development phase. 
Prototype Air Vehicle (~10 Ton lift capability)
Model  SF50T (~50 Ton lift capability)
Model SF500T (~500 Ton lift capability)
Major Program Key events
    MAS has broken the program into a phased approach for both the SF50T and the SF500T.  Each approach has its own set of program milestones and decision gates on how to proceed to the next step. The three phases are broken out as follows:
Phase I   Design, Test and Evaluation (DT&E)
Phase II  Full Scale Engineering Development (FSED)
Phase III  Certification and Production
Phase IV  - Development of SF500T
Phase I - Design, Test & Evaluation (DT&E)
During this development period two major elements of a successful program will be accomplished. Initially all trade and feasibility studies will define our final engineering to eventually design and build a 1/5 version of the Model SF50T Prototype Air Vehicle (PAV) in Phase II. The most important part of Phase I will be the ITAMMS test bed / demonstration model. ITAMMS is the key to make SkyFreighter product line a reality.
     The PAV will be developed as a test bed for all current and future technological advancements and systems upgrades. This Prototype Air Vehicle will not be sold but remain in inventory until its useful operational life cycle has been obtained. It is anticipated that this Air Vehicle will support the emerging needs of homeland security surveillance activities for countries such as, the United States, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Chile. All costs to complete final production drawings for this A/V have been included in our financial projections included in Section IV. Note that we have not forecast any sales for this smaller, surveillance Air Vehicle at this time.
Phase I-24 months
major milestones:
Implementation of strategic hiring plan
Implementation of engineering design facility
Securing   long   term   strategic   teaming   agreements   with   subcontractors   and   material suppliers
Define System Requirements Document (SRD)
Define System Description Document (SDD)
Define Interface Control Documents (ICD's)
Program Management Plan
System Engineering Management Plan
Risk Assessment Plan
Technology Assurance Plan
Preliminary engineering design
Trade and feasibilities studies
ITAMMS test bed / demo
Material trade off cost studies
Preliminary Design Review (PDR) PAV
Order Long Lead Time Material (LLTM)
 Secure temporary production facility
 Secure preliminary lease of Port of Bremerton land
Critical Design Review CDR) PAV
Preliminary environmental studies of land for potential production facility
Decision to proceed with FSED
Phase II - Full Scale Engineering Development (FSED)
     During this phase, MAS will build and test the 1/5 scale Prototype Air Vehicle to validate all systems and engineering design.  Engineering drawings and systems revisions will be made during this phase to ensure the production SkyFreighter air vehicles perform to all technical specifications.  We anticipate a six month flight test program to validate all systems.  In addition, land will be secured for the future production facility as well as initial site preparation and facility planning functions to ensure we can meet our production schedule outlined in Phase III.
Phase II-15 months
major milestones:
Early Start: Secure land for Plant One - production facility
Prepare production
Build production schedules
Complete PAV engineering drawings
Define FAA certification program
Manufacture 1/5 scale PAV
Flight crew orientation  and training
Execute Flight Test program to secure engineering data
Incorporate required change
Perform production facility and land studies
Preliminary Design Review (PDR) SF50T
Begin site preparation of production facility
Finalize design of production facility
Preliminary design of special tooling
Decision to proceed with Phase III
Begin FAA certification program
Phase III Production
Critical Design Review will be accomplished on the SF50T as well as final production drawings.  Final design for the production facility is being finished based on final engineering design.  We will build two SF50T's to be used for the FAA certification process.  During the FAA certification phase, we will build two more production SF50T's allowing us to complete sales our four SF50T's completing Phase III.
Phase III-36 months
major milestones:
Early Start
Order production buildings and materials
Complete site preparation
Order special tooling
Build Plant One
Complete FAA certification PAV
Incorporate issues into SF50T FAA Certification process
Perform After Action Reviews (AAR's)
Incorporate lessons learned
Critical Design review (CDR)
PAV 10Ton Air Vehicle
Model SF50T Air Vehicle
Final production drawings complete SF50T
Secure Long Lead Time Materials for production units
Plant One ready for production
Manufacture first two production Air Vehicles
Model SF50T
Flight crew orientation and training
Flight test program SF50T
FAA certification complete SF50T
Final production drawings complete SF50T
Delivery first production SF50T
