Some of the most expensive aircraft components to maintain are stabilized platforms used in aircraft inertial systems. In the majority of USAF aircraft equipped with an inertial system, the inertial platform ranges from the second to the eighth most expensive component to maintain. For most of these aircraft, depot level maintenance constitutes from 55 to 90 of the total inertial platform support costs. Several recent programs to improve reliability and reduce support costs of aircraft inertial systems have been hampered by the quality and type of base level performance and maintenance data available to the Aerospace Guidance and Metrology Center AGMC, USAFs inertial platform central repair depot. This study was an attempt to determine AGMCs specific requirements for base level data. Modified author abstract
