    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    The AN/USM-636(V) Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS) is a computer-assisted, multi-functional Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) used to test various electroniccomponents at Navy and Marine Corps Intermediate Maintenance Activities, Naval WeaponsStations, Naval Aviation Depots, and Naval Sea System Command support activities. Theobjective of the CASS program is to consolidate electronic and avionics support into one standardATE system. The CASS program is expected to grow as new weapon systems emerge andadditional testing requirements are identified. The CASS program is in Acquisition Phase III(Production, Deployment, and Operational Support). Milestone III was achieved on 28 March1994 for the Hybrid (HYB), the Communication, Navigation, and Identification (CNI), and theRadio Frequency (RF) configurations. The Electro-Optical Plus (EO+) configuration MilestoneIII decision was achieved in December 1998. The Initial Operational Capability was achieved inOctober 1993.

    CASS is a five-rack integrated test system. Additional racks configure the basic CASSstation into more specialized testers. CASS is designed to accommodate variations in workloadand allow for Test Program Set transferability among the different configurations. To alleviate arepeat of problems and deficiencies experienced in the fleet with older ATE hardware andsoftware, the CASS procurement process employs the same requirements placed upon majorweapon systems, including Developmental and Operational Testing directed by Test andEvaluation Master Plan guidelines.

    Operation and maintenance of CASS is currently performed by Navy personnel from theAviation Electronics Technician (AT) rating with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 6704. ATpersonnel with NEC 6705 perform on-line calibration and advanced maintenance. Two newNECs were recently approved for the ancillary High Powered Device Test Subsystem (HPDTS),and the EO+ configuration; NECs 6723 and 6724 respectively. Marine Corps personnel with theMilitary Occupational Specialty (MOS) 6467 currently operate CASS and perform allmaintenance including calibration. Two new MOSs have been proposed for EO+ and HPDTS.

    Initial training has been completed for the four CASS configurations : HYB, CNI, RF,EO+; and the ancillary HPDTS. CASS follow-on training has been established at MaintenanceTraining Unit (MTU) 3010 Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit Oceana, Virginia, and MTU3011 Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit North Island Detachment Miramar, California. Thethree established training tracks for AT 6704, AT 6705, and MOS 6467 have been revised andtwo new courses are being developed for the EO+ and HPDTS. This will result in two newtraining tracks for Navy personnel and two new tracks for Marine Corps personnel.
