In it he quotes the avionics cost as $3950 per pound (weight) for 1983 dollars. He the gives a CPI chart to show the cost for future year dollars. For 1994 the CPI factor is about 1.5. The full reference is: Burns, J. Wayne (1994). "Aircraft Cost Estimation Methodology and Value Of A Pound Derivation For Preliminary Design Development Applications", SAWE Paper No. 2229, 53rd Conference of Society of Allied Weight Engineers, Long Beach CA, 23-25 May 1994. Hope this helps.
