Sustain Aging Systems

System Sustainment DMSMS

Systems Sustainment is the ability to support fielded systems and extend their useful life cycle. Many aging radar, weapons, and communications systems face obsolescence and sustainability issues. Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Materials Shortages (DMSMS) can render a system inoperable, creating a potentially perilous situation.

Often with technology dating as far back as the 1960s and 1970s, there are many systems deployed within the DoD and FAA whose life cycle must be extended due to functionality and cost considerations.

For more than a decade, ARC has been highly successful at working with prime contractors and the government in identifying sustainment issues, providing reverse engineering and technology insertion to improve system performance, extend the life of fielded systems, and ultimately reduce the total cost of ownership to the government.

Supported Systems:

  • Air Route Surveillance Radar (ARSR-1, -3, & -4)
  • Airport Surface Detection Equipment (ASDE-3, -X)
  • Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR-7, -8, -9 & -11)
  • Air Traffic Control Beacon Interrogator (ATCBI-4, -5 & -6)
  • Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon System (ATCRBS)
  • Common Digitizer (CD-2)
  • DigitalBrightRadarIndicatorTowerEquipment (DBRITE)
  • Data Entry & Display System (DEDS)
  • Mode Select Beacon Systems (MODE-S)
  • Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR)
  • Radio Communication Link (RCL)
