Risk Assessment

Condition Based Maintenance and Risk Quantification

Aircraft maintenance is usually broken down one of two ways: by physical zones or by systems. The mechanical equipment and subsystems integrity program, also known as MECSIP, is the US Air Force’s approach to addressing aircraft sustainment and maintenance through focused system evaluation. Last week, MECSIP managers from many of the Air Force fleets gathered in Dayton, Ohio to discuss the latest developments, procedures, and technologies for addressing the MECSIP needs of their fleets.

What Are You Missing from Your Risk Assessment?

Creating maintenance action plans for vehicle sustainment is a heavily detailed process involving the collaboration between multiple groups. If any group has a less detailed (or flawed) analysis, the potential impact could be felt for years/decades to come. A structured process for assessment is outlined in the mechanical subsystems integrity program (MECSIP) outlined in military […] Read more

Next 15 Years of EWIS Design

The field of aircraft Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems (EWIS) has changed significantly in the last two decades. These changes have impacted the design, installation, maintenance, and sustainment of electrical wiring systems on aircraft. For example, increased electrical load requirements, materials restrictions, system safety assessment, and new regulations are just some of the areas that have […] Read more

EWIS Considerations for UAVs

Many of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) built have been for military applications. As this technology has matured so has the reliability. The improvements in reliability have made it a viable consideration to support civilian applications. Right now, the FAA has not certified a UAV, but undoubtedly this will occur. This video provides a cursory […] Read more

What is an aircraft wire Service Life Extension Program (SLEP)?

Over the years, the Lectromec website has received hundreds of thousands of visits. Often the topic of interest deals with Aircraft Wire Service Life Extension Programs. Because of this popularity, the Lectromec Podcast sat down with the president of Lectromec, Michael Traskos, to talk about Service Life Extension, or SLEP. During the interview Michael starts […] Read more
