Abstract:

The Modular Aircraft Support System MASS program is part of an effort to reduce the deployment footprint and increase the supportability of aerospace ground equipment AGE. The MASS program was initiated by the United States Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL. The contract directed Arthur D Little, Inc ADL to develop and evaluate concepts, and design, fabricate and test five MASS modules and a chassis in order to demonstrate the key features of the MASS design. The MASS Cart met all performance requirements during laboratory testing at ADL. The MASS program concluded with the successful demonstration of the MASS Cart at Edwards AFB, CA, using actual aircraft F-15, F-16, B-52. This report, the Final Report for the field demonstration Delivery Order 0012, also summarizes the other Delivery Orders involving the MASS cart.
