A Methodology for Estimating the Effect of Aircraft Carrier Operational Cycles on the Maintenance Industrial Baseby Roland J. Yardley
Synopses & Reviews
The Fleet Response Plan is a U.S. Navy program to enhance the operational availability of the aircraft carrier fleet. This report describes program modeling that varies the time between depot availabilities and the size of the depot work packages, to estimate its effect on the maintenance industrial base and the operational availability of the aircraft carrier fleet.
The U.S. Navy has implemented the Fleet Response Plan (FRP), which provides for an increased surge capability by Carrier Strike Groups. Although regularly scheduled six-month deployments still occur, aircraft carriers achieve a high state of readiness early and sustain the readiness for a longer period. This increased readiness provides...
