On the cutting edge of technology, ASEC is developing the Class IV, P-8A (Poseidon) Interactive Electronic Technical Manual (IETM) for maintenance. Authored in S1000D 4.1 XML, it will be the first of its kind for NAVAIR. Innovations include Common Information Repositories (CIRs) and Applicability tagging beyond S1000D 3.0. Advancements enable P-8A IETM to have dynamic publishing and viewing capabilities to support multiple customer needs. With over 30,000 individual Data Modules (DMs) and 38,000 entities, the P-8A CSDB is one of the largest and most complex in the industry. ASEC’s leading-edge team working alongside the CSDB software developers are the first in the industry to have CIR information resolve during publish.
Fleet Integration Training
The P-8A is one of the most advanced aircraft in the Navy’s inventory, aircraft systems software and capabilities are continuously being updated to the most recent technologies. These advancements require just-in-time training in order to maintain fleet readiness. ASEC’s Logistics team is comprised of the industries most experienced aircraft maintenance technicians and administrative personnel. We support the NAVAIR P-8A Program office in the development of training courseware and provide follow-on instruction to squadron personnel as aircraft are updated. This FIT strategy fills the training gap and improves fleet readiness until organic training curriculums are updated and trained at the P-8A CNATTU.
Our vast experience in aviation maintenance spans over ten different USN/USMC aircraft platforms both manned and unmanned. ASEC analysts support to NAVAIR Training Systems were essential in the development of the P-8A Maintenance Training System (MTS). Through the analysis of reliability data, we provided input into the development of the Task analysis, Media analysis, and Fidelity analysis for the P-8A MTS. The result of these efforts drove the requirement for all classroom courseware, hardware and virtual training devices. Along with the analysis NAVAIR relied heavily upon ASEC aircraft SMEs to review courseware being developed by the OEM to ensure it meet all CNATT requirements and technical accuracy. With over 500 years of military aviation service, our experts provide solutions for the most difficult technical issues.
