Maintenance performed on targets is based on the
concept that maintenance should be performed at the
lowest maintenance level capable of performing the
work, AU maintenance is performed in accordance with
approved NAVAIRSYSCOM maintenance plans,
maintenance instruction manuals, and maintenance
Organizational maintenance activities are
responsible for maintaining target logbooks, target
discrepancy books, target performance reports, and the
Visual Information Display System/Maintenance
Action Forms (VIDS/MAFs).
Logbooks are maintained for each target, and are
target age, status, operational history, modification,
configuration, and transfer and receiving data. This
information is maintained throughout the targets life
cycle. Refer to Volume II of OPNAVINST 8600.2B for
a list of all applicable publications for target systems.
TARGET DISCREPANCY BOOK
The Target Discrepancy Book, maintained by
maintenance control, for each target assigned is setup
by target serial number, which must accurately reflect
the status of all pending maintenance requirements as
shown on the maintenance control and work center
VIDS board. Discrepancy books are not maintained on
tow banners and tow lines. Flight records on target
drones are separated by the Aircraft Inspection and
the administrative means of providing managers with
