Abstract:

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