Abstract:

The Manufacturing Science and Technology Division MSTD, AMCOM has the mission and function of providing microelectronic technology assessments, and producibility and supportability analyses for the THAAD weapon system. MSTD evaluates the impacts of nonavailability of microelectronic parts on the life cycle supportability of the THAAD weapon System and evaluates the producibility of the THAAD weapon system. MSTD required engineering support in performing microelectronic technology and availability assessments for several hundred items and in assessing the impact of nonavailability on the THAAD weapon system. MSTD also required engineering support In performing producibility analyses of the THAAD weapon system. In order to facilitate the assessment of this system, the UAH Systems Management and Production Laboratory was tasked to conduct an in-depth analysis as to the life cycle health of the THAAD weapon systems component parts.
