The United States Navy is in the process of considering the use of Mobile Maintenance Facilities to provide an intermediate level maintenance capability to MH-53E helicopter minesweeping and countermeasure squadrons of four and seven aircraft while on deployment to remote locations. This thesis considers two alternatives; (1) no intermediate maintenance capability and, (2) full capability. Because of limited data only the repair of avionics components are considered. The alternative corresponding to no maintenance capability provides the increased inventory required to meet expected failures. The second alternative involves all of the elements of intermediate maintenance at a remote site as well as the needed supply support. Present value analyses of the life cycle costs are utilized to determine the least cost alternative. The results suggest that intermediate maintenance activities are the least cost alternative for avionics support for a seven-aircraft detachment and the most costly alternative for the four-aircraft detachment.
