Abstract:

The Air Force has used Contractor Logistics Support CLS for off-the-shelf or commercial derivative aircraft since 1948. This thesis traces the evolution of CLS, discusses the current USAF aircraft utilizing this support concept, and compares eight CLS contracts. An aircraft characteristics data base is developed for the E-4, C-9A, C-12A, T-43, KC-10, UV-18B, T-41, and C-20A. CLS contract costs are used as a dependent variable to provide an example of a parametric procedure that can be used to estimate CLS costs on proposed aircraft. Analogy as an alternate procedure is suggested. Recommendations on improving the CLS cost estimating in the future are presented. Author
