Abstract : Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) is a serious concern in today's Navy. As part of the E3 life-cycle effort, P-Static Assessments of TACAMO Fleet aircraft are being conducted. These assessments are used to monitor aircraft bonding integrity and maintenance procedures throughout the aircraft life-cycle. To minimize the problems associated with E3, aircraft bonding integrity must be maintained. A P-Static assessment is a quick-look method for finding bonding inconsistencies on the skin of the aircraft. Working hand in hand with the Fleet, problem areas can be identified and maintenance actions initiated to correct them. In the future, the P-Static assessments will be incorporated into the Enhanced Phase Maintenance (EPM) procedures. The P-Static assessments consist of power off testing along with dc bonding measurements of the static discharging system. The Fleet receives a brief report describing problems found during the assessment with recommended fixes. A database will be developed to document all problem areas and note any similarities between aircraft.
