Abstract
XMCO INC. WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE RAIL COMPANY PROPOSES A PHASE I EXPLORATORY DEVELOPMENT PROBLEM DEFINITION STUDY TO THE AVIATION SYSTEM COMMAND (AVSCOM) FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMBAT MAINTENANCE/ BATTLE DAMAGE REPAIR (CM/BDR) GUIDELINES/SPECIFICATIONS FOR AVIONICS IN ARMY HELICOPTERS. THE PROPOSED EFFORT ADDRESSES: (1) PROCEDURES/ SPECIFICATIONS TO AVOID THE NEED FOR CM/BDR AS WELL AS TO PROMOTE SUPPORTABILITY OF CM/BDR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES THROUGH INFLUENCE OF THE HELICOPTER AND AVIONICS ACQUISITION PROCESSES; AND (2) PROCEDURES TO CORRECT CM/BDR DEFICIENCES IN EXISTING AVIONIC COMPONENTS. PROBLEM DEFINITION IS APPROACHED THROUGH SIX TASKS THAT WILL: (1) REFINE CM/BDR GUIDELINE DEVELOPMENT INTERFACES AND FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS; (20 INVESTIGATE CM/BDR THREAT SEVERITY AND VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGIES; (3) IDENTIFY AND EVALUATE ACQUISITION PROCESS OPPORTUNITIES TO REDUCE CM/BDR IMPACT ON OPERATIONAL AVAILABILITY; (4) REVIEW DESIGN, SUPPORTABILITY, LOGISTIC ASSETS, AND MAINTENANCE DATA FOR EXISTING AVIONIC COMPONENTS; (5) SCOPE AND OUTLINE GUIDELINES RECOMMENDED FOR DEVELOPMENT; AND (6) PROVIDE A BRIEFING AND FINAL REPORT. PHASE I RESULTS WILL PROVIDE A CM/BDR PROBLEM DEFINITION TOGETHER WITH SCOPE AND OUTLINE OF CM/BDR GUIDELINES RECOMMENDED FOR DEVELOPMENT. SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF PHASE I WILL RESULT IN A PROPOSAL FOR DEVELOPING IN PHASE II THE RECOMMENDED GUIDELINES AS APPROVED BY AVSCOM.
