The primary objective of the Carrier Based Air Logistics study was to identify and evaluate alternative logistics support policies which could improve wartime aircraft availability and operational performance. This Note describes the database developed to support the CABAL analysis. An essential first step in the analysis was the development of a database describing the configuration of avionics suites and the characteristics of components that make up the suite for the six aircraft studied. The Note describes the data elements in the database, identifies their sources, and discusses the data problems encountered in the study. Also described generally are the uses of the data. The Note concludes with a discussion of data quality problems which surfaced during the analysis.
