EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The AN/USM-484 Hybrid Test System (HTS) provides intermediate and depot level maintenance facilities with the capability to fault isolate Weapon Replaceable Assemblies (WRA) and Shop Replaceable Assemblies (SRA) associated with complex avionics packages in modern aircraft weapon systems. Fault isolation is accomplished with the use of Test Program Sets developed and delivered to the Navy by individual WRA and SRA manufacturers. The HTS is a mature system no longer in production; and is in the Production, Deployment, and Operational Support phase of the Weapon System Acquisition Process.

The HTS is a general purpose Automatic Test Equipment system used in support of the AV-8B, EA-6B, F-14, F/A-18, S-3B, and SH-60B Aircraft and for off-line maintenance of the AN/USM-470(V)1 Avionics Test Set. It augments the AN/ASM-175 Electronics Module Test Console in supporting specific EA-6B and F-14 Aircraft systems. In October 1997, a small portion of the HTS workload was off-loaded to the AN/USM-636(V) Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS) with the phase out of the AN/USM-470(V)1. HTS maintenance support of the AV-8B will begin to off-load to CASS in August 1999. Navy-wide, HTS will begin phase out and replacement by CASS in Fiscal Year (FY)04.

The HTS is operated and maintained at Navy and Marine Corps Intermediate Maintenance Activities (IMA) and depot level maintenance facilities. Intermediate level maintenance personnel perform organizational level maintenance (on-equipment) and intermediate level maintenance (off-equipment), including identification and replacement of faulty SRAs within the test set, to maintain the HTS in an operational status. Depot level maintenance consists of repair, calibration, and overhaul of faulty SRAs by the Naval Aviation Depots at Cherry Point, North Carolina; Jacksonville, Florida; and North Island, California.

The manpower needed to support the HTS is based on the number of stations and maintenance requirements per site. Navy personnel from the Aviation Electronics Technician rating with Navy Enlisted Classifications 6688, AN/USM-484 HTS IMA Technician, and 6689 AN/USM-484 HTS Advanced IMA Technician, and Marine Corps personnel with Military Occupational Specialty 6465, HTS Technician, IMA, operate and maintain this test station.

Initial training for the HTS was conducted by the contractor and completed in July 1984. Follow-on training is currently conducted at Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1038, Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) Naval Air Station (NAS) Lemoore, California. MTU 3010, NAMTRAGRU DET NAS Oceana, Virginia, will begin follow-on training in first quarter FY00.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The AN/USM-484 Hybrid Test System (HTS) is a general purpose Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) system that fault isolates Weapon Replaceable Assemblies (WRA) and Shop Replaceable Assemblies (SRA) associated with complex avionics packages installed in modern aircraft weapon systems. The HTS is employed by Navy and Marine Corps Intermediate Maintenance Activities (IMA) and depot level maintenance activities in support of the AV-8B, EA-6B, F-14, F/A-18, S-3B, and SH-60B Aircraft. In addition, the HTS provides off-line maintenance support for the AN/USM-470(V)1 Avionics Test Set.

The HTS is a mature system widely used throughout the fleet. It has been selected as a candidate for replacement by the AN/USM-636(V) Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS) beginning in Fiscal Year (FY)04. However, HTS will remain in service for another ten years, or more, before it reaches obsolescence and is completely phased out of service.

2. Foreign Military Sales. Several countries have procured the HTS in support of their aircraft and avionics. These include Australia, Canada, Finland, Kuwait, Malaysia, Spain, and Switzerland. Refer to Program Manager, Air (PMA)260 for specific information concerning Foreign Military Sales.

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. A Technical Evaluation (TECHEVAL) was completed at Naval Air Test Center Patuxent River, Maryland, in August 1984. No special training for TECHEVAL personnel was required. No Operational Evaluation was required for the HTS.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. HTS does not replace any existing test equipment. It augments the AN/ASM-175 Electronic Module Test Console for specific EA-6B and F-14 Aircraft systems.

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The HTS is a stand-alone, computer-controlled test station designed to provide automatic performance verification and fault isolation of WRAs and SRAs under test. The Units Under Test (UUT) are tested through use of a high-speed computer stimulus under control of Test Program Sets (TPS). HTS uses commercial off-the-shelf hardware for over 75 percent of the test equipment and peripheral devices. The HTS hardware is mounted in four rack assemblies described below. Engineering Change Proposal (ECP)-009 for the 7906 Disc Drive Replacement was approved 23 December 1992; distribution of ECP-009 has been completed.

a. Control Equipment. Control equipment is used to control the stimulus and response equipment. It consists of the Harris H-100 computer, the IEEE-488 control system, and associated software elements.

b. Stimulus and Response Equipment. This group provides the signals necessary to exercise the system. It includes commercial off-the-shelf test equipment.

c. Interface Switching Equipment. The Interface Switching Equipment group consists of the Interface Switch Assembly and Digital Word Generator (DWG) Interface Device, which provide the means to test system status (self-test), including certifying calibration standards. Under TPS control, stimulus and measurement signals are routed through the interface switching equipment to either the HTS elements, the UUTs, or both.

2. Physical Description

Dimensions:

96.5 inches long

38.0 inches deep (+18 inches work surface)

78.25 inches high (without lifting eyes)

Weight:

4,000 pounds

Power Requirements:

115 Volts Alternating Current, 400 Hertz, 3 Phase, 15 Kilovolt Ampere, Delta or Wye Input

3. New Development Introduction. The HTS was delivered to the fleet as a new production ATE. Since delivery of the HTS to the Navy has been completed, HTS units from decommissioned carriers and activities are transferred to new sites as required.

4. Significant Interfaces. An Interface Switch Assembly and DWG Interface Device provide stimulus and measurement signals to either the HTS elements, the UUTs, or both. In addition, a calibration interface device is required by the HTS.

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. Not Applicable (NA)

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The HTS is employed at Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Departments (AIMD) ashore and afloat, as well as Marine Aviation Logistics Squadrons (MALS). At most locations, the HTS is operated for two or three shifts daily. Navy personnel from the Aviation Electronics Technician (AT) rating with Navy Enlisted Classifications 6688 (AN/USM-484 HTS IMA Technician) and 6689 (AN/USM-484 HTS Advanced IMA Technician), and Marine Corps personnel with Military Occupational Specialty 6465 (HTS Technician, IMA) operate and maintain the HTS.

2. Maintenance Concept. All maintenance requirements for the HTS are accomplished at the intermediate and depot levels. The HTS maintenance concept follows the direction and guidance provided by the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations Instruction (OPNAVINST) 4790.2G.

a. Organizational. The organizational maintenance on HTS consists of on-equipment work only, such as corrosion control, calibration, and troubleshooting.

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive maintenance consists of performing a daily confidence test and scheduled maintenance tasks at prescribed calendar or operating time intervals.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Corrective maintenance consists of on-line fault isolation to the faulty commercial test equipment Building Blocks (BB).

b. Intermediate. The HTS is employed in Work Center 690 at AIMDs and MALSs. IMA personnel perform selected intermediate level maintenance (off-equipment), including identification and replacement of faulty SRAs within the test system.

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive maintenance consists of performing a daily confidence test and scheduled maintenance tasks at prescribed calendar or operating time intervals. Preventive maintenance is required for equipment that has unsealed mechanical or electromechanical assemblies. The calibration module is scheduled for replacement at periodic intervals and will be sent to a Navy depot or contractor facility qualified to perform the calibration. Calibration of the HTS is performed every 30 days and requires a calibration interface device and four roll-up standards.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Corrective maintenance consists of on-line fault isolation to the faulty commercial test equipment Building Blocks (BB). New design equipment including the Power Monitor Control Unit, digital computer, and Interface Switch Assembly will be fault isolated on-line to the defective SRA. The DWG requires use of an interface device for on-line fault isolation to a defective SRA. DWG SRAs may be repaired at the intermediate level with the AN/USM-429(V)1 Computerized Automatic Test (CAT) IIID. Commercial test equipment BBs and all other SRAs are repaired at the depot level.

c. Depot. The calibration module is scheduled for calibration at periodic intervals at designated Naval Aviation Depots (NAVAVNDEPOT) Cherry Point, North Carolina; Jacksonville, Florida; and North Island, California. HTS WRAs and SRAs not repaired at the intermediate level will be forwarded to the nearest Navy depot or appropriate contractor or vendor facility for repair as required by the Maintenance Plan. The Fleet Support Team for HTS is NAVAVNDEPOT North Island.

d. Interim Maintenance. Representatives form the Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC) are available to provide technical assistance on the HTS as needed.

e. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. NA

3. Manning Concept. HTS manning is driven by the requirement for operators, maintainers, and advanced IMA technicians who perform preventive and corrective maintenance. No changes to current HTS manpower requirements are necessary at this time. However, as CASS replaces HTS in the fleet, manpower for HTS support will be phased out. Some of those billets may be reprogrammed to support CASS. This phase out is not displayed in this NTSP, since it will not begin until well after the five-year planning period addressed herein.

4. Training Concept. The overall objective of the HTS training program is to provide a ready supply of trained technicians to the intermediate level maintenance activities in support of fleet activities. Contractor training services were used to train an initial cadre of HTS operator and maintenance personnel as well as Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) instructors.

Selected Reserve personnel may earn intermediate level maintenance NECs by attending formal training at NAMTRAGRU DETs providing a quota and funding are available, and the student is available to attend the training. Specific guidelines are contained in NAVPERS 18068F Volume II, Chapter IV, Navy Enlisted Classifications.

a. Initial Training. HTS initial training courses were presented to fleet cadre and NAMTRAGRU DET instructor personnel by Harris Corporation, Government Support Systems Division (GSSD), on-site at Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1038, NAMTRAGRU DET Naval Air Station (NAS) Lemoore, California. HTS initial training was completed in July 1984.

b. Follow-on Training. HTS follow-on training is conducted at MTU 1038, NAMTRAGRU DET NAS Lemoore. MTU 3010, NAMTRAGRU DET NAS Oceana, Virginia, will begin follow-on training in first quarter FY00. Currently, the AN/USM-484 HTS Operator and Maintainer Intermediate Maintenance course, C-198-3063, is conducted at MTU 1038, and MTU 3010 will start in first quarter FY00. The AN/USM-484 HTS Advanced IMA Technician course, C-198-3876, is single-sited at MTU 1038. Marine Corps personnel attend C-198-3063 only to be awarded the MOS 6465.

I. ONBOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING

1. Proficiency or Other Training Organic to the New Development

a. Maintenance Training Improvement Program. The Maintenance Training Improvement Program (MTIP) is used to establish an effective and efficient training system responsive to fleet training requirements. MTIP is a training management tool that, through diagnostic testing, identifies individual training deficiencies at the organizational and intermediate levels of maintenance. MTIP is the comprehensive testing of one's knowledge. It consists of a bank of test questions managed through automated data processing. The Deputy Chief of Staff for Training assisted in development of MTIP by providing those question banks (software) already developed by the Navy. MTIP was implemented per OPNAVINST 4790.2 series. MTIP allows increased effectiveness in the application of training resources through identification of skills and knowledge deficiencies at the activity, work center, or individual technician level. Refresher training is concentrated where needed to improve identified skill and knowledge shortfalls. MTIP will be replaced by Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training (AMIST) in FY01.

b. Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training. AMIST is intended to support the Fleet training requirements now satisfied by MTIP, and in that sense is the planned replacement. However, it is structured very differently, and will function as an integral part of the new Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System (AMTCS) that will replace the existing aviation maintenance training structure. AMIST will provide standardized instruction to bridge the training gaps between initial and career training. With implementation of AMIST, technicians will be provided the training required to maintain a level of proficiency necessary to effectively perform the required tasks to reflect career progression. AMIST is scheduled to begin for intermediate level activities the second quarter FY01.

c. Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System. AMTCS will redesign the aviation training process (training continuum), and introduce CBT throughout the Navy technical training process. The application and adoption of recent advances in computer hardware and software technology will enable CBT, with its basic elements of Computer Managed Instruction, Computer Aided Instruction, and Interactive Courseware, to be integrated into the training continuum and provide essential support for standardizing technical training.

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. NA

3. Other Onboard or In-service Training Packages. Marine Corps onboard training is based on the current series of MCO P4790.12, Individual Training Standards System and Marine Training Management Evaluation Program (MATMEP). This program is designed to meet Marine Corps, as well as Navy OPNAVINST 4790.2G, maintenance training requirements. It is a performance-based, standardized, level-progressive, documentable, training management and evaluation program. It identifies and prioritizes task inventories by MOS through a front-end analysis process that identifies task, skill, and knowledge requirements of each MOS. MTIP questions coupled to MATMEP tasks will help identify training deficiencies that can be addressed with refresher training.

2. Program Documentation. An Operational Logistics Support Plan (OLSP) for the HTS, OLSP-CSE-0441:AA:RB, was developed in September 1987 and subsequently updated. The OLSP was then replaced by the Phased Support Plan (PSP), PSP-CSE-0471:AA, in September 1990. A draft User Logistics Support Summary, U76097003, dated April 1997 has been developed to replace the PSP.

3. Technical Data Plan. Harris Corporation's GSSD provided Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIRSYSCOM) with the basic on-line and off-line maintenance manuals on HTS. These manuals are available through the NATEC. A new intermediate level maintenance manual for the AT-826-HO-MIB-210 Disc Drive has been developed and is an open purchase item through NAVAVNDEPOT North Island. It became available in August 1997.

4. Test Sets, Tools, and Test Equipment. HTS maintenance is performed with common hand tools and special tools identified and approved in the maintenance plan.

5. Repair Parts. Spare and repair parts have been provisioned and are available through the Naval Inventory Control Point, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The Material Support Date was achieved 1 October 1987.

6. Human Systems Integration Plan. NA

K. SCHEDULES

1. Installation and Delivery Schedules. Delivery of the HTS to the Navy has been completed. Base Realignment and Closure decisions continue to affect HTS locations. AIMD NAS Cecil Field is scheduled for closure by September 1999, and as a result, three HTS stations will be transferred to AIMD NAS Oceana. The remaining four stations will be utilized by Type Commanders to fill deficiencies in Commanders Naval Air Force, Unites States Atlantic Fleet activities first, then Pacific Fleet or Fleet Reserve activities. Two stations are allocated to the Aircraft Carrier, Nuclear (CVN)-76, United States Ship (USS) Reagan. They are in storage at the Fleet and Industrial Supply Center, Cheatham Annex, Williamsburg, Virginia, and are anticipated to be onboard third quarter FY99. The following tables depict current locations of HTS units. Information on the transfer of other HTS units is not available at this time, but will be included in future updates to this NTSP.
