Abstract:

The objectives of this report are to offer the Navy a limited study of some of the problems and possible solutions associated with avionics corrosion control that could be the basis of a manual devoted to that subject. The research methods employed sought information from two sources 1 published material from secondary sources to take advantage of what is already known and documented in the literature, and 2 primary sources derived from activities and experiences within the Bendix Field Engineering Corporation. The conclusion to be drawn is that the essential difference between corrosion problems in large structures and corrosion attacking avionic equipment is that minute corrosion products that could degrade or disable complicated avionic equipment would go unnoticed on large mechanical structures. The results of the investigation correlate positively with previous Bendix work in corrosion phenomena and control.
