Many aircraft weapons systems, built to have a long life, become inoperable after time. Fast advances in aerospace technologies and the gradual erosion of the manufacturing base for aircraft hardware in the US, has caused a problem of obsolescence of aircraft hardware.
The military is presently depending on weapons systems designed in the 1970s and 1980s to serve well into the new century. The Army and Air Force expect their systems and vehicles to be used until 2030, and 2040, respectively. However, the manufacturing capabilities for aircraft hardware are continually focused on new, higher profit systems, leaving no capacity for the remanufacture of obsolete aircraft hardware.
The use of aircraft hardware originally was driven by the need to deliver reliable weapon systems when they were new. The typical 10 – 20 year life cycle of these systems were the same as the systems in which they were installed. However, as the military is relying on these systems much longer, the availability of many components may become scarce, or become obsolete aircraft hardware.
The solution to this problem of lack of supply for aircraft hardware is an ongoing partnership between the government and obsolete aircraft distributors.
