Abstract : Integrated-circuit boards are successfully reworked at sea in a converted LCU vessel by technicians without prior experience as a demonstration of feasibility. Tools and equipment required are organized into an itemized repair kit. Analysis of shipboard maintenance trends indicates that automatic equipment is not likely to achieve 100-percent testing capability, and that there will always be occasion when the success of a mission will depend upon a technician to isolate and rectify faults in complex electronic equipment. Need is foreseen for electronics technicians with greater aptitude and more intensive training. (Author)
