Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO PROVIDE A REVIEW AND ANALYSIS OF EXISTING AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE SHELTER STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS AND MOBILE HEATING/COOLING SYSTEMS. ONE ATTRACTIVE APPROACH IS TO REFINE PRIOR WORK ON THE LOCARCH SHELTER PROGRAM IN A TEAMING EFFORT WITH LOCKHEED GEORGIA COMPANY, THE ORIGINAL DEVELOPER. SHOULD NO EXISTING SHELTER HARDWARE PROVIDE SATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE, THE EFFORT SHALL ALSO INCLUDE PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF REQUIRED MODIFICATIONS TO THE BEST EXISTING DESIGN TO MEET REQUIREMENTS THROUGH THE USE OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS. EMPHASIS SHALL BE PLACED ON LIGHTWEIGHT, MOBILE SHELTERS. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT AT THE CONCLUSION OF PHASE I, ALL PRELIMINARY DESIGNS, MANUFACTURING PLANNING, AND CONTRACTUAL ISSUES NECESSARY TO ALLOW FABRICATION AND TEST OF A FULL-SIZED PROTOTYPE STRUCTURE SHALL BE COMPLETED.
