Abstract:

The equipment Modernization Program provides for the modification or conversion of materiel already in the Army inventory. These functions are extremely important because they result in improved reliability, maintainability, availability, safety and performance levels of existing equipment. Such improvements are a very cost effective way to keep a fleet of vehicles performing at peak levels and extend their life span without procuring replacement systems. Modification is the application of changes to materiel which do not greatly alter the basic characteristics of the item in terms of mission, performance, or capability. Conversion is the application of changes so extensive as to alter an items basic characteristics in terms of mission, performance or capability and results in a new nomenclature of the item.
