Abstract:

This report presents the results of a continuing examination of a procurement concept, currently being implemented by the Aeronautical Systems Divisions Deputy for Aeronautical Equipment ASDAE, for acquiring a standard medium-accuracy inertial navigation system INS for the U.S. Air Force. The report deals with issues of equipment qualification, test and integration, procurement policy, configuration control, alternative support concepts, incentives, and penalty provisions. The report reviews the lessons learned during open forum meetings to develop a form, fit, and function F3 specification for an Air Force standard medium-accuracy INS. A management tool for identifying other avionics standardization opportunities is also described. The report offers conclusions and recommendations in each of the areas investigated. Author
