    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Advanced composite materials are used extensively in Navy and Marine Corps aircraft andwill continue to be used increasingly in future aircraft. The objective of this program is to developa training progression for Navy and Marine Corps Aircraft Structural Mechanics that leads toproficient intermediate level repair of advanced composite materials. Advanced CompositeMaterial Repair (ACMR) at the organizational level is limited to temporary repair untilintermediate level maintenance support is available. This document will only address ACMRintermediate level maintenance, manpower, and training. For organizational level ACMR refer tothe appropriate aircraft NTSP. Initial Operating Capability was reached in August 1988. Thisprogram is in the final acquisition phase, Production, Deployment, and Operational Support(Phase III).

    Advanced composite materials have replaced some metallic materials in many aircraftstructures. The technology for advanced composite materials is still evolving even though thesematerials have been in use for several years. New information and techniques are continuallyadded to the current level of knowledge and skills. Advanced composite materials are used in theAH-1W, AV-8B, CH-53E, HH-60H, F/A-18A/B/C/D/E/F, CH-46D, CH-46E, MH-53E, SH-60B, SH-60F, VH-60, and V-22 aircraft.

    Advanced composite materials are repaired by Navy Aviation Structural Mechanic(Structures) (AMS) with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 7232, and Marine Corps AirframeMechanic personnel. In FY94, the Marine Corps established Military Occupational Specialty(MOS) 6092 specifically for aircraft structural intermediate level maintenance.

    The AMS A1 school curriculum provides all prospective Aircraft Structural Mechanicswith theory of advanced composites. Additionally, the specific ACMR course, C-603-3868, isavailable in the Airframes Intermediate Maintenance training track, D/E-603-4007. This ACMRintermediate maintenance training course is taught at Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1038Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit (NAMTRAU) Lemoore, California, and MTU 1039NAMTRAU Oceana, Virginia.

    PREFACE

    This Approved Navy Training System Plan (NTSP) for the Advanced Composite MaterialRepair (ACMR) Program has been prepared to update the Draft Navy Training System Plan, A-50-8404D/D, dated March 2001. This update complies with guidelines set forth in the NavyTraining Requirements Documentation Manual, OPNAV Publication P-751-1-9-97. Itincorporates the latest ACMR program manpower data supplied by the Naval Manpower AnalysisCenter and clarifies Onboard (In-Service) Training by adding qualifying information.

    D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

    1. Operational Uses. The purpose of the ACMR program is to provide trained Navy andMarine Corps aircraft structural mechanics in the repair of advanced composite materials at theintermediate level of maintenance in Work Center 51F. This program focuses on the advancedcomposite materials used in the AH-1W, AV-8B, CH-53E, HH-60H, F/A-18A/B/C/D/E/F, CH-46D, CH-46E, MH-53E, SH-60B, SH-60F, VH-60, and V-22 aircraft.

    2. Foreign Military Sales. NA

    E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. Since this is a maintenanceprocedure and not an aircraft or aircraft component, and the materials used in the repair operationare commercial-off-the-shelf, these tests were not required.

    F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. NA

    G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

    1. Functional Description. Advanced composite materials consist of a combination ofhigh-strength, stiff fibers embedded in a common binding material (e.g., carbon fibers and epoxyresin). Composite structures are ma
