AH-64 Apache


4.3.11 Local Fabrication Requirements

TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW lists all locally manufactured items required to support the AH-64D Longbow Apache (including A/D common items). Local manufacture will be accomplished IAW TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW.

4.4.0 Supply

Supply support is established using initial stockage allowances developed from maintenance engineering estimates based on LSAR data. Projections are made using the Selected Essential-Item Stockage for Availability Method (SESAME) computer program. Data from Force Development Test and Experimentation (FDTE) and Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOTE) results are also used.

Standard Army Aviation supply system procedures, per AR 710-2 and AR 725-50, will be used to provide repair parts for the AH-64D. The statement of work (SOW) in the airframe and FCR production contracts requires that both contractors provide ICS for Longbow unique parts from DD250 end item delivery until five years after fielding. Through this agreement, the contractors have set objectives that all High priority (01-08) requisitions will be filled within 24 hours, all other requisitions will be filled within 5 days. Depot level repairs will have a 45 day turn-a-round time average (dock to dock). To meet these objectives, the contractors will maintain the stockage for D-unique components have the ability to transfer items between locations as needed.

4.4.0.1 AVUM and AVIM Supply Operations

When a D-unique item is found unserviceable, the owning unit is responsible for removing, requisitioning, turn-in, and reinstallation of that item. The owning unit will request replacement D-unique items through normal supply channels and procedures. The requisition will be processed normally and the National Inventory Control Point (NICP) will issue a Material Release Order (MRO) to the Contractorís Depot.

The contractor will then direct the issue of the replacement item to the SSA supporting the requesting unit. The unserviceable part, with all required documentation, will be turned-in to the SSA, which will forward the unserviceable item to the local contractor operated window, such that the unserviceable item is delivered to the window not later than 24 hours after issuing the requisitioned spare. The contractor will have the ability to cross level assets between windows to meet operational needs. Local turn-in procedures may vary as directed by locally developed procedures.

LBHMMS will have three-level supply, with depot level ICS.

4.4.0.2 Supply Window Operations

The contractor will establish a network of contractor operated supply windows that will serve as contractor/user interface for Apache Longbow aircraft wholesale support. The contractors will ensure that their supply requisitioning system is compatible with the Armyís automated systems. Boeing-Mesa and LBL supply window operations will co-locate.

4.4.1 Mission Support List (MSL)

The FC writes a Mission Support List (MSL) for each unit receiving the new EI/WS. Through close coordination with the GC, it is tailored to the particular unit being given the system and its ASIOE. The MSL identifies the authorized requirements for the following:

  1. EI/WS, including all component major items.
  2. ASIOE.
  3. AVIM and AVUM Support Equipment.
  4. ASL items (LBHMMS Only).
  5. STTE.
  6. Test, Measurement, and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE), to include Test Program Sets and interconnecting devices, where applicable.
  7. Special Mission kits or equipment (e.g., blackout kits, arctic kits).
  8. Technical Publications.
  9. COMSEC Equipment.
  10. Requirements for ammunition; bulk Petroleum, Oils, and Lubricants (POL)óeven though specially controlled commodities like these are not included in the support package.

When the MSL is complete, the FC assembles a coordination package for review by the GC. Items in the MSL include the PGSE and equipment in Appendix P and LBHMMS items in Appendix R. The MSL does not include the ICS items in Appendix R, as they will be contractor-controlled. It does not include A/D or HELLFIRE carryover items to be retained by the unit.

4.4.1.1 Authorized Stockage List (ASL) and Prescribed Load List (PLL)

Gaining and supporting units will retain items currently on their PLL/ASL unless directed to turn in particular items by their MACOM. No AH-64D- or FCR/RFI-unique PLL/ASL items will be issued or included in the MSL.

AH-64D aircraft and FCR unique repair parts will be maintained by the contractors per the system outlined in Sections 3.5 and 4.4.0. Missile system ASL items will be issued to the appropriate AVIM SSA.

4.4.2 Components of End Item (COEI) List

See Section 9.7, Aircraft Inventory Master Guide and Appendix J. The COEI list for the AH-64D Apache Longbow is the "Aircraft Inventory Master Guide" from the IETM table that feeds the DA Form 2408-17. Additional components which may be applied to the aircraft are unit property (i.e., certain avionics items [Appendix K], missile launchers) and are found on unit MTO&E/TDAs.

4.4.2.1 Aircraft Survivability Equipment

ASE associated with the AH-64A will be turned in per the MOA at Appendix B. PM, AEC, will be responsible for reissuing the ASE to fielding units at the 21st Cavalry Brigade, Ft. Hood. Accountability will be maintained per the MOA.

4.4.5 Float Quantities

The aircraft mix shown in Section 2.4 relates to each line unit fielded. Operational Readiness Float (ORF) quantities and locations will be managed by the FORSCOM Aircraft Distribution Manager. Currently, 23 AH-64D aircraft are designated as ORF for FORSCOM and will be issued between the dates shown in Section 2.4. FORSCOM determines float aircraft locations and allocation.

4.4.5.1 Operational Readiness Floats

Operational Readiness Floats (ORF) are authorized IAW Chapter 6, AR 750-1, and Supply Bulletin (SB) 710-1-1. ORF AH-64Ds will be issued to appropriate units per DA and FORSCOM distribution planning.

4.4.5.2 Repair Cycle Floats

There will be repair cycle floats. Twenty repair cycle float (RCF) aircraft will be issued to Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD) in Mar 09.

4.4.5.3 Other float requirements

None.

4.4.6 Basic Sustainment Materiel (BSM)

Army Aviation units typically carry a specified amount of BSM based on projected usage given the mission expected for the unit. BSM includes POL, Environmental Control System (ECS) coolant, other identified bulk supplies, and ammunition. Except for ammunition and coolant for the environmental control system, BSM for the AH-64D should be comparable with that for the AH-64A.

4.4.6.1 Petroleum, Oils, and Lubricants (POL)

No change is expected from that on hand for the AH-64A. Normal Aviation unit re-supply procedures will be followed. Stockage levels will be based on unit Operational Tempo (OPTEMPO) and flying hour programs. Estimated usage levels based on 174 flight hours per year per AH-64D follow:

Numerous POL itemsósuch as MIL-L-7808, MIL-L-23699, or MIL-H-83282 listed aboveóare listed in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW. The consumption rate for these items is low and variable. A list of expendable supplies and materials is also listed in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW. Fuels for the AH-64D may vary from JP-8 listedói.e., JP-4, JP-5, or a commercial variant such as JET-A may be used. Approved fuels are listed in TM 1-1520-251-10.

4.4.6.2 Other Bulk Supplies

Any necessary items will be identified on the MSL.

4.4.6.3 Ammunition Requirements

The integration of the LBHMMS on the AH-64D requires the issue and handling of the Longbow HELLFIRE Missile. Normal Army Aviation ammunition re-supply procedures will be used to replenish units in the field. RF missiles are ammunition for the LBHMMS, and will be pre-positioned at ANAD. Where authorized for rapid deployment force (RDF) units, missiles may be prepositioned at the ammunition supply point (ASP) serving the unit.

4.4.7 Plans for Replaced or Displaced Equipment and Materiel

Current plans are for the AH-64D system to provide a block improvement of the existing AH-64A fleet. Existing AH-64As and HELLFIRE launchers will be converted into the AH-64D and LBHL. Plans will be affected by the eventual size of the AH-64 program, particularly in regard to retrofit requirements and DA funding appropriations. The possibility to procure new-build aircraft and/or launchers exists, but is not expected at this time. Figure 4-1 illustrates the projected fleet mix as the AH-64A is re-manufactured into the AH-64D with and without FCR Mission Kit. The MOA (Appendix B) outlines the procedures for inducting the AH-64As into the re-manufacture program.

Figure 4-1

4.4.8 Evacuation Procedures

Requirements for evacuating unserviceable AH-64A materiel will be per the MOA.

The list of A-model peculiar items for turn-in is continually reviewed and updated. Fielding units will be provided with current equipment turn-in lists by the AAH PMO upon notification that their unit is standing down for re-equipping with the Longbow weapons system.

4.4.9 Method of Distribution

Initial issue materiel will be distributed to units at their home stations approximately thirty days prior to the arrival of aircraft at home station. Project codes for distribution, including those for turn-in or transfer of ASE, have been developed by TYAD and include Project Code CME. The LBHMMS Project Code is IB4.

 

The MOA for induction, Appendix B, outlines the aircraft transfer schedule and includes Transfer Team visit activities. Figure 4-2 exhibits the TR-Date schedule. Figure 4-3 illustrates the expected time an aircraft is in the re-manufacture process. Together, both figures represent the total time required from initial MFT visit to the unit's receiving its re-manufactured aircraft. In Figure 4-2, "ACE" is Airframe Condition Evaluation.

4.5.1 Transportability Guidance and Procedures

Transportability requirements are broadly identified in AR 70-47, Engineering for Transportability. Program requirements are initially identified in the ORD and further defined in the AH-64D System Specification. Both configurations of the AH-64D, including any removed items and appropriate PGSE, shall meet the requirements of AR 70-47 and shall be capable of being transported aboard
C-141B, C-5A, or C-17 aircraft in accordance with MIL-STD-1791. The aircraft shall also be capable of being transported and hangar stored below decks in the landing platform helicopter (LPH) type carrier, Fast SeaLift ships, Roll-on/Roll-off, LASH, SEABEE ships, and Military Sealift Command (MSC) dry cargo ships.

Additionally, the aircraft shall be transportable by military M-270A1 trailer and commercial "Air-Ride" trailer or equivalent. For aerial recovery, the AH-64D with MMA will be externally transportable by CH-47D aircraft using the Unit Maintenance Aerial Recovery Kit (UMARK). Two AH-64D aircraft plus one FCR will be transportable by C-141, six AH-64Ds (with a minimum of three FCR mission kits) are transportable by C-5, and three AH-64Ds and three FCR mission kits are transportable by C-17. The transportability criteria of MIL-STD-1791 will be met. TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW contains all configuration requirements for transporting Longbow weapon system components.

AH-64Ds will be flown from point to point within a given theater of operations whenever possible. Using the extended range fuel system, self-deployment is possible.

4.5.1.1 Test Requirements/ Results

The Transportation and Transportability test requirements included in the TEMP state that the AH-64D must be configured for air transport and reconfigured after transport within 1.5 clock hours over the time required for the AH-64A, and six AH-64Ds with a minimum of three FCRs will be transportable in a C-5. Additionally, manpower and personnel requirements must be the same as for the AH-64A. Final EMD Transportability Report was received from Boeing-Mesa January 1996. AH-64D transportability timing test was successfully completed 15-20 May 1995. A C-5 test loadout using military personnel and production aircraft and FCRs is planned for April 1998, prior to FUE, at which time six AH-64Ds will be transported from Boeing-Mesa at Mesa, AZ, to Ft. Hood, TX.

4.5.1.2 Interservice Requirements

The AH-64D aircraft and FCR are not currently being acquired for multi-service (i.e., Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard) use. The Navy will acquire the LBHL. Interservice requirements are not covered in this MFP.

4.5.1.3 Special Care During Transport

This system may require special care during transport. Special transportability requirements and care, if any, are identified in the Transportability Report and will be documented in the Preparation for Shipment procedures in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW.

Lifting and tiedown requirements and procedures for the AH-64D and related components are contained in the Transportability Report and will be documented in the Preparation for Shipment procedures in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW.

 

4.5.1.4 Resource Requirements/ Availability

The transportability request for approval of an updated Transportability Plan/Report based on LSAR Record J data will be submitted to:

Director

MTMC Transportation Engineering Agency

ATTN: MTTE-DPE (Jennifer Napiecek)

720 Thimble Shoals Blvd., Suite 130

Newport News, VA 23606-2574

This request was submitted and approved prior to Milestone III decision review. MTMC TEA formally reaffirmed Milestone II transportability approval, and it is attached as Appendix M.

4.5.1.5 LSA Interface

The LSA ensures that transportation/transportability requirements and processes are traceable to the Longbow system design IAW MIL-STD-1366. Transportability requirements have been a major consideration during the design and/or modification of the air vehicle, subsystems, and support equipment. Anticipated transportability problem items will be identified for evaluation and possible redesign. Transportability requirements will be recorded on LSAR data Record J, Transportability Engineering Characteristics, and documented in the LSA-085 master file. Data documented on Record J will be utilized to prepare transportability reports/plans.

4.5.2 Security-in-Transit

a. General. The AH-64D, as a weapon system end item, is UNCLASSIFIED when manned and operating. With the ASE non-operational, cockpit displays are UNCLASSIFIED when avionics, sensors (including FCR, RFI, TADS, and PNVS) are operating and ground truth data is not associated with detected targets. Although the FCR waveform is CLASSIFIED, its operating characteristics are not discernible from the cockpit. However, there are hardware components that have imbedded CLASSIFIED software algorithms, source codes and operating codes. Therefore, the aircraft weapon system should be secured and safeguarded, as appropriate, based upon the local commanderís policy.

1. Software (source code or documentation) which reveals technical design characteristics or algorithms classified by the current Apache Attack Helicopter Security Classification Guide will be classified at the same level as that technical design characteristic or algorithm. All other software will be UNCLASSIFIED.

2. Ground Truth Data is defined as the knowledge of the number and type of targets/emitters within an FCR scan area to include surveyed information on the target/emitter locations.

3. The production of on-board video representations of the various displays, including FCR, RFI, TADS, and PNVS are not considered classified. Care should be taken that audio portions of the recording, by nature of conversation, do not reveal classified information.

b. Aircraft Specific Classification. The Apache Attack Helicopter Security Classification Guide identifies the security classification of equipment and data cards that may be installed on the AH-64D Helicopter. The local commander will have to develop a home station and non-home station policy based on the equipment and data cards installed on that unit's aircraft and location to which .the aircraft is operating.

 

c. LBHMMS Specific Classification. There is no special security requirement regarding the LBHMMS launcher. The LBHMMS missile is a Category III physical security item.

d. Materiel will be moved in accordance with the Defense Traffic Management Regulation, AR 55-355, and Military Standard Transportation and Movements Procedure (MILSTAMP), DoD 4500.32R. Items identified as sensitive under the provisions of DoD 5100.76M will be provided in accordance with standards included in the manual and AR 55-355, Chapter 34. Security classified items will be shipped in accordance with AR 380-5 and AR 55-355.

   

4.6.1 Packaging

a. Aircraft. The only packaging requirements will be addressed in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW. For sea shipment, the aircraft must be covered with some type of shipping cover.

b. LBHMMS. Requirements and procedures for unpacking and repackaging the LBHMMS are identified in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW.

c. FCR. All spare LRUs/LRMs will be shipped in reusable containers.

4.6.2 Handling

a. Aircraft. Procedures for off-loading and de-processing shipment of the AH-64D are found in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW.

b. LBHMMS. Requirements and procedures for the LBHMMS are identified in
TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW.

c. FCR. Special handling requirements are identified in
TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW.

4.6.3 Storage

a. Aircraft. The AH-64D will be stored in accordance with information in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW. Storage requirements will be considered in design by the contractor as a part of the PHS concept. Existing storage facilities will be evaluated by the contractor to determine their adequacy. Aircraft storage modes include flyable, short term, intermediate, and long term requirements. Flyable storage will be of indefinite duration. Minimum procedures required to maintain the aircraft and systems in flyable status will be developed. The target duration for short term storage is 45 days of inactivity with minimal attention, 180 days for intermediate term storage, and 14 months for long term storage. The maximum authorized duration for each level of storage shall be established according to PHS test and evaluation results. AH-64D aircraft-unique requirements will be specified in Long Lead/Production contracts as required.

b. LBHMMS. Requirements for storing the LBHMMS are identified in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW

c. FCR. Requirements for storing the FCR are identified in TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW

Information in the classified supplement to the Draft Operatorís Manual, TM 1-1520-251-10, will be sanitized and/or declassified and included in the fielded Operatorís Manual. Other classified information pertinent to fielding, if there is any, will be furnished under separate cover as Appendix S. Currently, there is no classified data in the MFP.

    4.7.1.2 TM Changes

    Changes to the AH-64D technical manuals will be printed and fielded a minimum of once a year or a maximum of three times a year as necessary. DA Form 2028 capability will be provided in both the electronic and paper formats.

    4.7.2 Supply Manuals and Bulletins

    There are no unique supply publications scheduled for release in conjunction with the AH-64D Apache Longbow or LBHMMS. SB 742-1410-92-011, Ammunition Surveillance Procedure for: HELLFIRE Modular Missile System, may be changed in the future to include new information pertinent to the LBHMMS.

    4.7.3 Camouflage Pattern Painting Requirements

    There are no specific requirements to paint the system in a camouflage pattern; standard Army Aviation painting guidelines will be followed. No camouflage painting requirement exists for the LBHMMS.

    4.7.4 Instruction Cards and Placards

    There is no requirement for any placards or cards other than those attached to the helicopter. Not applicable for the LBHMMS.

    4.7.5 Inspection, Test, and Calibration Requirements

    The AH-64D aircraft will undergo acceptance inspection and test flights prior acceptance by the government. TM 1-1500-328-23 and TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW outline the transfer requirements between U.S. Army units. Procedures for inspection, test, and calibration of support equipment are found in TB 43-180 and applicable technical publications. Inspection, Test, and Calibration Procedures are not applicable to the LBHMMS.

    4.7.6 End Item/Weapon System (EI/WS) Environmental Effects (per
    AR 200-1)

    The environmental impact of the Apache Longbow and associated weapon systems is covered in the Environmental Impact Analysis (EIA), Annex E to the Longbow Integrated Program Summary (IPS), Appendix C. The EIA and IPS were completed for the Milestone III Defense Acquisition Board in October 1995. Updates, if any, to the EIA will be available from SFAE-AV-AAH-S upon publishing.

    4.7.7 Modification Work Orders

    AH-64D aircraft will be delivered with no outstanding MWOs.

    M299 LBHLs will be delivered with all applicable (carryover) M272 launcher MWOs applied.

    4.7.8 Transportability and Transportation Guidance TMs

    TM 1-1520-APACHE/LONGBOW, the IETM for the AH-64D Helicopter, covers the requirements for transporting and shipping the Apache Longbow and associated weapons systems.

    4.7.9 Demilitarization

    Unserviceable components from the AH-64A aircraft may require Demilitarization (DMIL) according to DOD 4160-21-M-1. DMIL and Explosive Ordnance Demolition (EOD) for the RF missile is covered in TM 43-0003-26. Disposition of cartridge/propellant actuated devices are covered in TM 9-1377-200-20.

    4.8.1 Mobile and Fixed Facilities

    There are no special facilities required for the fielding of this system. Standard Army Aviation Facilities in use for the AH-64A at the time of fielding will be adequate for the Apache Longbow aircraft and its associated weapon systems. However, a "hangar survey" will alert units to potential problems due to the added height of the Longbow MMA. There are no special facilities requirements above those for the AH-64A except for additional minimum height of approximately 18 feet for hangar doors and rafters in order to provide clearance for the AV412 antenna atop the vertical fin.

    A site visit will be conducted at each post or installation to determine facilities for the supply windows. Coordination between the AAH PMO, ICS contractors, installation or unit commanders, and other supporting agencies as required (i.e., Installation Directorates of Engineering and Housing) will be necessary to determine the exact location and space for each installationís ICS Supply windows. An estimate of 1600 square feet warehouse space and three offices will be required to provide supply window operations. The diagrams which follow provide two options for supply window space:

    4.8.2 Environmental Controls

    Environmental control requirements used for the AH-64D and LBHMMS remain the same as those used for the AH-64A and HELLFIRE Modular Missile System.

    4.8.3 Site Activation and Preparation

    No special site preparation is required beyond that in place for AH-64A aircraft. There are no additional utility requirements for the AH-64D above those required for AH-64A facilities. Any new Military Construction, Army (MCA); Military Construction, Army Reserve (MCAR); or Military Construction, Army National Guard (MCARNG) requirements: none projected.

    4.8.3.1 Programming and Scheduling Requirements

    Schedules and program requirements are not a part of this MFP because a need for major modifications to existing facilities was not identified. These requirements will be submitted for inclusion in the MCA appropriation request if they arise at a later date. Military construction funds for new facilities have a five-year lead time.

    4.8.5 Security Requirements

    Special security requirements for storage and use of classified end items, components, manuals, TPSs, and other sensitive material is under continual analysis by the AAH PMO Security Office. Security levels and any electronic countermeasures (ECM) or TEMPEST requirements for specific materials will be identified. The Security Classification Guide is under continual update by the AAH PMO. Provisions for shipment and storage of classified spares to/from each installation needs to be in place prior to aircraft and unit return to home station. The ICS window is not planned as a classified item container.

    The AH-64D weapons system is UNCLASSIFIED when manned and operating. With ASE non-operational, cockpit displays are UNCLASSIFIED when avionics, sensors (including the FCR, RFI, TADS, and PNVS) are operating and ground truth data is not associated with detected targets. Although the FCR waveform is CLASSIFIED, its operating characteristics are not discernible from the cockpit. However, there are hardware components which have imbedded CLASSIFIED software algorithms, source codes, and operating codes. Therefore, the aircraft weapon system should be secured and safeguarded, as appropriate, based upon the local commanderís policy.

    Software (source code or documentation) which reveals technical design characteristics or algorithms classified by the Security Classification Guide will be classified at the same level as that technical design characteristic or algorithm. All other software will be UNCLASSIFIED. Ground Truth Data is defined as the knowledge of the number and type of targets/emitters within an FCR scan area to include surveyed information on the target/emitter locations.

    The production of on-board video representations of the various displays, including FCR, RFI, TADS, and PNVS are not considered CLASSIFIED. Care should be taken that audio portions of the recording, by nature of conversation, do not reveal classified information.

    4.9.1 Manpower and Personnel

    No changes in manpower and personnel requirements or limitations are expected in relation to the currently fielded AH-64A aircraft and associated systems.

    4.9.1.1 Tables of Organization and Equipment (TO&E) and TDAs

    4.10.1 Training Materials

    Contractor developed manuals and course literature will be used for the initial training in AH-64D Apache Longbow subjects. TRADOC is currently developing Soldier Training Publications (STP) to support the AH-64D. These materials will be made available to the units when published. STPs include applicable Field Manuals (FMs), the Aircrew Training Manual (ATM), and unit ARTEP standards manuals.

    4.10.1.1 Training Aids

    The various TMs developed by the contractor for fielding with the AH-64D Apache Longbow will be the primary training aids during Operator, Maintainer, and Support (OMS) personnel training. Other training aids will include lesson plans, student handouts and visual aids produced during the training development process. The AH-64D Longbow section of the Apache ATM, Training Circular (TC) 1-214, will be the primary aircrew training aid following unit conversion.

    4.10.1.2 Training Data

    The STPs developed by TRADOC will include applicable training data. This data will include updates to applicable FMs, the ATM, and ARTEP.

    4.10.1.3 Training Devices

    Simulators and other training devices will be used in conjunction with the
    AH-64D aircraft to enhance proficiency. The training device suite for the Apache Longbow will incorporate the latest technology and focus on training of critical tasks. The training media spans the spectrum from electronic classrooms and computerized training to individual, crew, and collective simulation trainers, to aircraft embedded training and simulation devices for "live" combined arms training. The training devices to be used at USAAVNC and USAALS, as well as units down to company/troop level include (* Service Schools only):

      • Longbow Crew Trainer (LCT)
      • Longbow Collective Training System (LCTS)
      • Tactical Engagement Simulation System (TESS)
      • Training Missile Emulator (TME)
      • Interactive Computer Based Training (ICBT)
      • * Airframe, Engine and Drivetrain Systems Trainer Ė L6 (AEDST-L6)
      • * Multiplex, Avionics, Visionics, Weapons and Electrical Systems Trainer Ė L7 (MAVWEST-L7)

    4.10.1.3.1 Longbow Crew Trainer (LCT)

    The LCT will be an individual and crew training device to conduct qualification training at the USAAVNC and sustainment training in the field. A transportable non-motion based simulator with a highly sophisticated visual system, the LCT will replicate the cockpit and aircraft functions to train selected critical tasks. Located at selected installations on a geographical basis, the LCT will be capable of linking with other Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) capable devices.

    4.10.1.3.2 Longbow Collective Training System (LCTS)

    The LCTS will replicate a unitís capabilities to "see, move, shoot, communicate, and survive". It will be capable of training critical mission essential crew, team, company, and battalion tasks. The system architecture of the LCTS will be DIS compliant and networkable with other devices including Combined Arms Tactical Training (CATT) simulators. Located at the same sites as LCTs, the LCTS will also be transportable in shelters with self-contained power units and environmental systems. The LCTS will be issued to installations on a geographical basis to provide a collective/combined arms training capability.

    4.10.1.3.3 Tactical Engagement Simulation System (TESS)

    Each AH-64D will have a capability to use the TESS "strap on kit". The TESS will simulate all on board weapons systems to provide real time casualty assessment for force-on-force collective training at home stations and the Combat Training Centers (CTCs). TESS is currently under development and a fielding schedule will be developed at a later date.

     

    4.10.1.3.4. Training Missile Emulator (TME)

    The TME consists of software embedded in each missile launcher which provides the capability of simulating RF missile operations. The TME can replicate the functioning of four RF missiles on each launcher. The TME will replicate the missile's launch mode selection processing, target acquisition/target tracking functions, and missile BIT routines. Each AH-64D will have the embedded training capability of the TME.

    4.10.1.3.5. Interactive Computer Based Training (ICBT)

    Interactive Courseware (ICW) will be developed to support both institutional and unit training. A prime consideration for the ICW is that it must be useable on existing hardware (normally a standard IBM PC) currently used at both the institution and the unit. Service schools and field units will use the ICBT to support academic training and sustain systems knowledge. Dynamic graphics and student-computer interactivity will provide increased training effectiveness. These systems will also incorporate audio, video, real time simulation, and hyper-text into a single highly interactive source.

    4.10.1.3.6. Airframe, Engine, and Drivetrain, Systems Trainer (AEDST-L6)

    The AEDST-L6 is a full-size replication of the AH-64D with removable components. Its primary purpose is to support the training of critical Apache Longbow airframe repairer (MOS 67R) remove-and-install tasks and skills. It has functional modularity which permits simultaneous task training of airframe, engine, drive, brakes, landing gear, utility, fuel, environmental control, and drivetrain/flight control systems.

    4.10.1.3.7. Multiplex, Avionics, Visionics, Weapons, and Electrical Systems Trainer (MAVWEST-L7)

    The MAVWEST-L7 consists of a full-size replication of the AH-64D with functional subsystems and a separate Instructor/Operator Station (I/OS). The primary purpose of the MAVWEST-L7 is to support the training of the Apache Armament/Electrical/Avionics repairers (MOS 68Y). Its functional subsystems include the Fire Control Radar (FCR), TADS, Pilot Night Vision Sensor (PNVS), IHADSS, Area Weapon System (AWS), Point Target Weapons System (PTWS), and 2.75" Folding Fin Aerial Rocket (FFAR) delivery system. Using the "fault-insertion" capability of the Instructor/Operator Station, the MAVWEST-L7 enables the instructor to further develop studentsí skills and knowledge in weapons and electrical systems troubleshooting as well as fault isolation techniques.

    4.10.1.4 Training Equipment

    When operator and maintainer training occurs at Mesa, AZ, some of the gaining unit aircraft may be used in the conduct of this training. Unit aircraft will be made available to the unit by E-Date. Training equipment is shown in Appendix T.

    4.10.2 Other Training Requirements Not Previously Mentioned

    No new training facility requirement has been identified. One of the goals of this training program is to limit training facility requirements to those already in existence to support the AH-64A program. A surge of training may occur during the lengthy transition time from a 100% AH-64A fleet to a 100%
    AH-64D fleet. This surge should be accommodated by the scheduling process (use of second and third shifts) and not drive a requirement for any new permanent training facility.
