This report documents an analysis of Automatic Test Equipment ATE for use with the Army helicopter Improvement Program AHIP aircraft system. The study addresses the Test Support System TSS versus spares and the MSM-105V2. The MSM-105v2 is the 410V4 modified for van installation. For five different alternatives, this study compares the 20 year peacetime cost of repairing AHIP avionics. The alternatives include the use of spares at AVIM with ATE at Depot or the location of ATE at both AVIM and Depot. The analysis suggests that it would be more cost effective to locate the TSS at AVIM nd Depot than to place the MSM-105V2 andor spares at these same levels. Table 3.1 displays the results of the analysis for each alternative. Final figures are shown for the grand total cost and the total provisioning cost.
