The Carrier Based Air Logistics study examined alternative logistics policies and structures for support of avionics equipment installed on six aircraft in most carrier deckloads — the E-2C, F-14A, S-3A, and three A-6 variants. It considered the entire logistics support system for component repair and the interaction of its various elements, including maintenance, supply, and transportation. This Note documents in further detail the maintenance analysis. It focuses on three key resources employed by the logistics support system: maintenance manpower, test equipment, and management.
