In IMAs, the material control center has an
aeronautical material screening unit (AMSU). This
unit coordinates the screening of received materials
and parts to determine the status and repair
responsibility and capability.
PRODUCTION DIVISIONS.Normally, the
l-level maintenance organization consists of six
production divisions, as shown in figure 1-2. The six
production divisions are power plants, airframes,
avionics, armament equipment, aviation life support
equipment, and support equipment. In this chart you
can see that if the OMD and IMA are combined, an
organizational maintenance division is established.
Additionally, a support services division may also be
established if so desired. However, this discussion
deals with the six normal production divisions and
their responsibilities, minus organizational
maintenance and support services divisions.
The type of work that you will perform is the same
regardless of the maintenance level at which you are
working. If you are an AD, you will work on engines.
If you are an AE, you will work on instruments and
electrical equipment. If you are an AT, you will work
on avionics equipment. However, the work that you
will perform is at a level beyond the capability of the
supported activity. In this section, the more important
responsibilities and functions of these divisions are
Power Plants. ADS staff the power plants division.
They perform maintenance on power plants, power
plant components, and associated systems.
Airframes. AMs are assigned to work centers in
the airframes division. The airframes division is
responsible for the specified level of maintenance for
the airframe and structural components; moveable
structures and surfaces, including their hydraulic and
pneumatic control and actuating systems and
mechanisms; air-conditioning, pressurization, visual
improvement, oxygen, and other utility systems; and
seat and canopy ejection systems and components.
Avionics. The avionics division is staffed with
the appropriate combination of ratings to provide
maintenance of avionics equipment for the
supported activities: AEs maintain aircraft electrical
and instrument systems. AT(I)s perform
intermediate- level preventive and corrective
maintenance on aviation electronic components
supported by conventional and automatic test
equipment, including repair of weapons replaceable
assemblies (WRA) and shop replaceable assemblies
(SRA). The AT also performs microminiature (2M)
component repair, and performs test equipment
qualification and associated test bench preventive
and corrective maintenance.
Armament Equipment. AOs are assigned to the
armament division. They maintain aircraft armament
equipment and aviation ordnance equipment.
Aviation Life Support Equipment. PRs are
assigned to the aviation life support equipment
division. This division is responsible for intermediate
maintenance in connection with parachutes, life rafts,
pressure suits, oxygen masks, emergency equipment
kits, flight clothing, oxygen regulators, automatic
parachute actuators, and aviators protective helmets,
etc. AME personnel also may be assigned to this
division for upkeep and support of the oxygen system,
pressurization and air-conditioning systems, and other
emergency equipment as assigned within the scope of
Support Equipment (SE). The Aviation Support
Equipment Technician (AS) performs the necessary
maintenance on the SE assigned to the maintenance
department and supported activities. SE includes such
items as test stands, workstands, mobile electric power
plants, and pneumatic and hydraulic servicing
What is the purpose of the production control
At the intermediate maintenance activity, who
provides qualitative and quantitative analytical
information to the AMO?
At the I-level, power plants, airframes, avionics,
armament equipment, support equipment, and
aviators life support equipment are known as
what type of divisions?
