Abstract:

Maintenance of equipment involved in the complex electronics and weapons systems of todays Armed Forces is becoming, in a sense, as important a factor of a tactical situation as the strategy behind the situation. This is because the decision behind, and the method of, so-called pushing the button is becoming more and more dependent upon the proper operation of the communications, radar, sonar, computer, fire control, and other special devices involved in its accomplishment. Inopportune downtime of key equipment is at best expensive, and at worst may conceivably be disastrous. A new maintenance concept is explained which is intended to enable marginally experienced military personnel to keep equipment downtime to the very minimum.
