Intermittent Fault Detection & Isolation System

See state-of-the-art Intermittent Fault Detection & Isolation System™ (IFDIS™) – No Found Fault intermittent fault detection equipment capabilities first hand. Outstanding efforts are taking place at Ogden Air Logistics Complex, Hill AFB to detect and isolate faults in aircraft Weapon Replaceable Assemblies (WRAs)/Line Replaceable Units (LRUs). WRA/LRU degradation is aggravated by complex physical forces consisting primarily of vibrational stress, temperature and humidity extremes, and a high operational tempo.

Air Force Full Aircraft Robotic Laser Removal 
Hill AFB is the site of an Air Force program that encompasses fully autonomous laser paint removal systems for the F-16 Falcon and C-130 Hercules aircraft. The laser energy is applied through large, high-precision robots specially designed and built for this application. On the tour, discussion will focus on safety, environmental, and economic benefits of the technology.

Tech Insertion and Cyber Security Workshop Download Presentation |  AF IDM Authorizing Official Guidebook
An issue facing insertion of new, innovative technology is obtaining Cyber Security (CS), Interim Authority to Test (IATT) and/or Authority to Operate (ATO) approval. Requirements for CS, IATT and ATO continue to evolve and become more stringent. Gaining an understanding of those requirements  as well as learning how best to meet them has become a challenge. This workshop will have experts from the Services to address the issue. Additionally, an Air Force case study will be presented on lessons learned in achieving Cyber Security/IATT approval.
Speakers: James Clark, Mercer Engineering Research Center (MERC), Frank Zahiri, Warner Robins AFB, Lance Ray and/or Robert Worrell, Air Force AO office, and Alain Lussier, Solavitek
