Abstract: This report identifies the potential benefits and costs of upgrading the current fleet of DHC-7 aircraft to the Q400. We accomplish this through conducting an analysis of the Army's current operational mission sets, the projected life cycle costs of each aircraft, and the alternative courses of action. In addition, we utilize value engineering and feedback analysis tools to support the recommendations and findings. Once complete, the final product from this research could become part of a future aerial requirements packet for the Aerial Common Sensors (ACS) program. The Aerial Reconnaissance and Exploitation Sensors (ARES) program office, located at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD, will receive the results of the research identifying the financial and performance benefits of purchasing the Q400.
