Intermediate Level Aviation Mobile Maintenance is currently conducted by the United States Marine Corps (USMC), Marine Aviation Logistics Squadrons (MALS) and also the USMC and United States Navy (USN) Electronic Warfare Community using a type of Mobile Facility (MF). The system is designed to be flexible and adaptable to changing mission requirements. This thesis investigates whether the same type of system could be utilized on the next generation aircraft carrier (CVNX). The shipboard and ashore locations for the MF are investigated and the appropriate time to move them ashore as well. The proposed system is examined from an ashore perspective, and the infrastructure required to support the MF when offloaded from the aircraft carrier identified. The responsibility. transportation, site plan, complexing, power requirements, and manning issues are each addressed for the proposed system. The analysis of the proposed system reveals that the costs associated with: procurement, configuration, transportation. ancillary gear, and maintenance to implement the proposed system are quite large. Also, the manning at both the shipboard and ashore commands would need to adjust as well. The changes required to execute the proposed system would require extensive investment and the return on this investment would not be realized until all aircraft carriers had implemented the proposed system
