Abstract : The Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC) stores aircraft that are determined to be excess. These aircraft are preserved awaiting future regeneration, sale to foreign governments, reclamation of their components, or disposal. The present programs provide substantial return to the Department of Defense. The primary objective of this study is to review the present system and develop recommendations to optimize the financial return. To address this issue, interviews were conducted with key personnel in AMARC, the Navy, and DRMO. Current instructions were reviewed, and required data were collected. Analysis of the data and structure of the process revealed many areas which could be improved. The recommendations involve both immediate and long-term financial benefits, and include; more efficient disposition planning for newly arriving and stored aircraft, increasing the effectiveness of the reclamation program, adopting aggressive marketing techniques and incentive plans for aircraft parts sale, and stabilizing the Unit Standard Price (USP). Implementing any of the recommendations should provide a higher return on excess aircraft and aircraft parts than is presently realized.
