Abstract : The Carrier Based Air Logistics Study (CABAL) was conducted to examine alternative logistics support policies for avionics equipment with respect to their potential to improve aircraft availability and performance in wartime. The study considered avionics components on six aircraft types that are included in most carrier deckloads--the F-14A, S-3A, E-2C, and three A-6 variants. This Note documents the analysis, findings, and conclusions of the CABAL supply and transportation analysis. Although the CABAL analysis indicated that the DRMS shore repair alternative, in general, is not currently attractive, a number of opportunities for improvement in current policies and procedures are identified.
