Aircrew Oxygen Systems (AOS) Support
Spectrum Sciences, Inc. is currently supporting the AOS Team by providing contract logistics, analysis, systems engineering, technical engineering and programmatic support for PMA-202 and the 4.6 and 3.1 competencies of NAVAIR/NAWCAD Integrated Product Team Leaders (IPTL) and Assistant Program Manager for Logistics (APML). Examples of our efforts are:
Providing developmental updates and distribution of the On-Board Oxygen generating Systems (OBOGS) Logistics Support Analysis Record (LSAR) maintenance plan. The preparation and the maintenance of the LSAR are a substantial undertaking. This requires collecting and sorting the necessary data to perform analysis and calculation of the Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), safety consequences, mathematical calculation, and cost elements. Data are also gathered from aircraft and support equipment maintenance publications, Maintenance Requirement Cards, (MRCs), etc., and are analyzed as part of this effort.
Provide the development of Users Logistics Support Summary (ULSS) and Integrated Logistics Support Plan (ILSP) for the CRU-103/P non-Navy Combat Edge (NCE) oxygen regulator. Provide the preparation, generation and distribution of Logistics Requirements and Funding Summary (LRFS), Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) Analysis, and Trend Analysis of Aircraft and Support Equipment components under the cognizance of the AOS Team.
Preparation, generation, and distribution of Engineering Investigations (EIs), participation in on-aircraft and lab testing of new experimental procedures and products, as well as the preparation of updates to in-service procedural recommendations from the Fleet.
Participation in fleet liaison with active duty personnel, to find out where the potential problems are, and what fixes can be implemented to provide customer/fleet satisfaction.
Generate publication data required to write and submit the procedures for OBOGS related testing and troubleshooting, for all equipped platforms. Observe, develop and participate in test plans for aircraft OBOGS systems as well as other oxygen systems and provide written reports of test results. Coordinate the testing of aircraft with the PLO offices and current aircraft platform shops.
Develop and maintain costing models for the EA-6B and C-130 aircraft as they pertain to the retrofit of Liquid Oxygen (LOX) to OBOGS. Develop Cost Benefit Analyses (CBAs) and retrofit studies and analysis to demonstrate the exponentially large potential savings by retrofitting all Navy TACAIR aircraft and aircraft carriers from LOX to OBOGS.
