The US Navy and the US Marine Corps (USMC) is set to take delivery of a modernised aircraft diagnostic and maintenance system from Boeing.

Used for servicing military aircraft, the Reconfigurable Transportable Consolidated Automated Support System – Depot (RTCASS-D)device is the first of ten units that are being upgraded to simplify and aid aircraft maintenance.

The systems consolidate depot level testing into a single station, improving efficiencies and lowering cost for the US Navy and USMC, while maximise the use of existing equipment.

Boeing RTCASS programme manager Tim Murphy said: "These upgraded test stations support our customers’ depot-level readiness targets and missions while saving them time and money.

"RTCASS-D is the first CASS-family tester designed and built exclusively for depot applications."

"As the navy works to consolidate its depot-level mission operations with the Boeing-built testers, we look forward to helping the service meet its increased performance and mobility requirements."

The RTCASS-D will allow technicians to test and troubleshoot electronic systems on aircraft such as the F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet; V-22 Osprey; AV-8B Harrier and other navy and USMC platforms.

PMA-260, Naval Air Systems Command CASS/RTCASS integrated product team lead Sam Winters said: "RTCASS-D is the first CASS-family tester designed and built exclusively for depot applications.

"The enhanced capabilities in this system allow fleet readiness centres to offload test programme sets from legacy testers cheaper and more quickly than ever before while also leveraging hundreds of test programme sets previously built for CASS."

RTCASS-D will be installed at US Navy fleet repair centres in 2016.
