Abstract : This report documents research performed for the Integrated Model Development Environment (IMDE) by Armstrong Laboratory, Logistics Research Division, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio in the area of Multi-Function Aerospace Support Systems (MASS). Analysis was performed using the Integrated Model Development Environment (IMDE), a modeling and simulation tool developed by Armstrong Laboratory, Logistics Research Division. The purpose of the research was to determine the change in deployment footprint of a USAF flying unit caused by combining the functionality of current Aerospace Ground Equipment (AGE) systems into a modern, systems-engineered design. The team collected data on exiting AGE capabilities and built a simulation model to consider sortie generation implications of combining current AGE functionality. The results of this study show that MASS units would not decrease the sortie generation rate of a unit and may produce a reduction in deployment footprint.
