Abstract:

The Department of the Army Electromagnetic Environmental effects E3 Program is an effort to incorporate electromagnetic considerations into weapon system vulnerability assessment. The program attempts to insure that Army systems function properly in predicted electromagnetic environments. If shortcomings in system design and operational performance are found, steps are taken to correct the deficiencies. This paper represents an Integrated Logistic Support approach to interfacing with the E3 Program and the E3 Program and the E3 engineer. A better weapon system will result if Electromagnetic Environmental Effects are considered during the development of an Logistic Support Analysis Strategy. Ensuring that the design engineer is aware of supportability concerns during the design process is a primary goal of the Integrated Logistic Support process and will influence the reliability of the system in the field. Maintenance engineering should be of help in accomplishing this goal.
