Abstract:

The mission profile, mode of operation, life cycle environmental profile and planned platform use shall be used to develop degree of corrosion prevention and control required. Corrosion prevention and control is achievable by requiring and enforcing currently available CECOM specifications and standards which, because of rapidly changing technologies, need to be continually upgraded. A CPC plan should be generated in the advanced development acquisition phase and updated in every ongoing phase. All design decisions and materials selection, including ECPs, should be reviewed for impact on corrosion resistance. SSSs should include requirements for protective storage and periodic inspections for corrosion and visual RH indicators. Maintenance manuals should describe cleaning processes, non-corrosive cleaning fluids and suitable drying procedures. Any sign of corrosion, after test or in the field should require correction, since corrosion once started is progressive and does not reverse. All electronic or mechanical failures should be subject to failure analysis to determine if root cause of failure is corrosion. Warranties should specifically insure against corrosion failures. Environmental tests, with proper severity, will disclose corrosive potentials.
