Abstract : This report investigates how the increase in future fighter aircraft weapons systems reliability may impact the design of maintenance facilities. It investigates the technologies that will be incorporated in the Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) to determine if they will increase this aircraft's reliability. The paper briefly discusses the likelihood of a fighter being built that is capable of operating out of a very austere base. The report found that the intermediate level maintenance avionics and engine shops will be reduced in size and they could be eliminated.
