This thesis investigated the number of In-Flight-Technicians assigned to a Navy P3C squadron, their contributions to the squadrons ASW capability in their dual roles as in-flight and ground repairmen, and the adequacy of the In-Flight-Maintenance-Kit. Tradeoffs between the number of In-Flight Technicians and ground avionics workers were evaluated as were various methods of the In-Flight Technicians ground and airborne utilization. Potential benefits associated with In-Flight Technician assignment to Intermediate and Depot Level maintenance activities were also examined. The In-Flight Technicians contributions to the squadrons ASW capability were measured in Equivalent Aircraft Units which were a function of how many repairs were corrected and the impact on ASW capability of the systems repaired.
