To ensure the reliable use and to increase the ratio of cost to efficiency of the complex weapon system in the war, the reliability optimization of complex weapon system has received considerable study interest. Unfortunately, this kind of optimization problem usually belongs to the catalog of nonlinear optimization with multiple local extreme values. To make use of the global searching ability in optimization problem of this kind, Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is utilized in this paper to solve the complex weapon system reliability optimization problem. The general process of PSO algorithm is provided and implemented using advanced programming language. The simulation results show that PSO is an effective algorithm, and has obtained solution with the highest precision in solving the same problem as cited in the published literatures pertaining to optimizing complex weapon system reliability.
