Abstract
MISSION RESEARCH (MRC) PROPOSES AN SBIR INVESTIGATION TO: 1. TABULATE THE VEHICLE PARTS AND STRUCTURES MOST SUSCEPTIBLE TO DAMAGE AND FAILURE DURING CRITICAL USAGE IN THE BATTLEFIELD OR AWAY FROM SUPPLY LINES AND ACCESSIBLE REPLACEMENT AND: 2. DEVELOP PLANS TO FIELD REMANUFACTURE OR REPAIR THESE DAMAGED PARTS. A LOCAL MANUFACTURING AND MACHINING CAPABILITY WOULD INCREASE THE RETURN RATE OF VEHICLES AND EQUIPMENT TO DUTY. THE FIRST TASK WOULD BE THE COMPUTERIZED TABULATION OF CRITICAL PARTS AND MATERIALS SUBJECT TO DAMAGE. THIS WOULD INCLUDE A REPLACEMENT AND REMANUFACTURING ANALYSIS RATING AND POSSIBLE CHANGES IN MATERIAL OR DESIGN. THE PART WOULD BE INVESTIGATED TO DETERMINE MATERIAL, USAGE, SUPPLIER REQUIREMENTS AND SUBSTITUTION POSSIBILITIES. ENGINEERING CRITERIA WOULD BE USED TO DETERMINE OUR OBJECTIVES AND MAINTAIN CONTINUNITY OF MATERIAL REQUIRE-MENTS. THE NEXT TASK WOULD BE TO DESIGN AND REMANUFACTURING SYSTEM AND SELECT THE EQUIPMENT AND PROCESSES THAT WOULD PERMIT THE REPLACEMENT OF THESE PARTS UNDER LESS THAN IDEAL CIRCUMSTANCES. FINALLY A PHASE II EFFORT WOULD BE THE USE OF THE MACHINES NECESSARY TO MAKE PARTS OR ENGINEERED DESIGN REPLACEMENTS UTILIZING THE REBUILDING AND REMACHINING SYSTEM.
