1 LOGIS-TECH CS/CSS TASK FORCE Meeting Corrosion Is An Enemy! CHP is a Weapon!

2 The Reality CORROSION COST DOD $20 + BILLION ANNUALLY! COST OF CORROSION TO ARMY AVIATION $1.2 Billion ANNUALLY! COST OF CORROSION TO ARMY VEHICLES $2.4 BILLION ANNUALLY 20% OF ALL ELECTRONIC COMPONENT FAILURES RESULT FROM MOISTURE INDUCED CORROSION! COST OF CORROSION TO ARMY MISSILES $1.6 BILLION ANNUALLY! “At a time when the nation faces increased financial constraints, it is important for both DOD and Congress to be in a position to weigh the trade-offs between competing requirements and risk associated with degraded equipment readiness, so that they can make sound investment decisions on the use of the funding” GAO Report GAO-07-814 Use Of CHP Can Be A Significant Part Of The Solution

3 The CHP Program Reduces Maintenance Backlog Caused by Moisture Induced Corrosion, Unfinanced Technician Manning Levels, and Increased Requirements from Fielding Modern Maintenance-Intensive Systems ARNG Maintenance Mission Traditional Guardsmen 5% Military Tech 40-50% CHP “IS” the 3rd Pillar of Maintenance Varies with Mobilization & Deployment CHP “A Readiness Stabilizer”

4 CHP Applications Sheltered (LTP/MLTP) and Unsheltered (OP) CHP Applications Sheltered (LTP/MLTP) and Unsheltered (OP) Sheltered CHP uses a new or converted shelter as the protection envelope. Unsheltered CHP (OP) uses the vehicle or aircraft to create the protection envelope. Ft Riley, KS Fort Pickett, VA BOTH CHP APPLICATIONS ALLOW UNLIMITED ACCESS TO EQUIPMENT!

5 CHP Shelter Applications Provide:  Protection for entire vehicle and installed equipment from corrosion damage.  Regulatory Compliant deferral of all MAINTENANCE ACTIONS while in CHP for up to 60 months.  Regulatory Compliant Reporting - Mission ready equipment in CHP remains reportable as mission ready.  Significant Cost avoidance in manpower and parts.


7 CHP system provides stabile low humidity air to entire turret area The M1A1 Tank Turret contains electronic components – Total Value – $596,837.00. Cost of a Controlled Humidity Protection (CHP – OP) System for 20 M1 Tanks – $100,000.00. Total value of electronic components protected by a single CHP system - $11,936,755.00. Failure data shows that USMC II MEF’s 72 M1s experienced and average of 59 failures of these components per year at an annual value of $1,793,964.00. Studies confirm 20% of ALL electronic failures result from moisture induced corrosion and that CHP is confirmed as eliminating moisture induced corrosion. Reducing LRU failure costs by 20% provides an annual $358,792.00 of cost avoidance in parts alone per OP Line. Reducing the Impact on the Supply and Maintenance Pipe Line through Reduced Component Requirements


9  Initiated as SBIR Phase II Demonstration by ARNG LOG in 1994 at MN and MS to access CHP capability to: ** Reduce maintenance costs ** Reduce corrosion damage ** Conserve limited resources ** Sustain or Increase readiness  ARNG expanded into full program in 1996 with implementation continuing today.  ANG initiated demonstration of CHP in 2005 based on ARNG realized success and need to reduce impacts of corrosion related damage on ANG systems. ** F-15/KC135/ AGE at Hickam AFB in 2005 ** ANG continued implementation in SC for F-16s/C-130  ARNG Aviation demonstration initiated in 2010 in VA and SC but full usage delayed due to deployments.  On continuous CHP contract since 1994 with contract in effect today. ** W9133L-08-D-0017 NGB CHP Program

10 DOD and DHS Expand CHP Implementation to Gain Resource Control In Constrained Environment USMC – 102 Systems for tanks, artillery, vehicles at 19 Sites world wide provides improvements in total readiness while reducing total cost of corrosion. USAF – Implemented 75 systems for F-22, C-130s, F-15s and Pave Hawks at 3 sites with 41 additional systems in approval process. USCG – Implemented 101 systems at 28 sites with plans to outfit entire 211 AC fleet. Dispatch rates up 9% and LRU failures down 4.65% / 1000 flight hrs. USA – Four systems at two sites for Strykers and PREPO Ship Prep. Navy – 16 systems at 12 sites for V22 and EP3 aircraft and electronic equipment storage.

11 Leveraging Controlled Humidity Protection Through Enterprise Integeration Leveraging Controlled Humidity Protection Through Enterprise Integeration Bottom Line: Improves Materiel Readiness While Reducing The Logistics Footprint REQUIRED 100% of personnel 100% of assets THE CHP ADVANTAGE < 100% of personnel Low equipment usage Fewer maintainers ACTUAL  Adaptive systems SVESS ESS ® equipment staging ESS ® operational  Protects equipment when not In use  Requires less maintenance  Requires less repair parts 100% of assets


13 Controlled Humidity Protection  Army National Guard Realized a $1.2B dollar cost avoidance benefit for a $75M investment. CHP cited as the most beneficial component of the Corrosion Prevention Program.  Ohio NG reported a $32M manpower cost avoidance between FY96-FY08 at Ravenna Depot. In comparing two Avenger units, the unit utilizing controlled humidity protection had 83% fewer Single Stock Fund expenditures.  USCG achieved 9% improvement in “dispatch rates” and a reduction of 4.34 failures per 1000 flight hours for 6 avionic components. Implementing CHP fleet-wide.  The USMC identifies CHP as a key component of a total Corrosion Prevention Program stating that it:  Reduces the need for corrective maintenance,  Increases equipment usability and safety,  Increases opportunity for training and operations,  Reduces the overall total cost of equipment ownership to the Marine Corps, and  Improves readiness and decreases maintenance costs.  PACAF increasing CHP utilization to meet corrosion-related readiness challenges.
