F/A-22 Sustainability – Supporting Mission and Operational Success 2005-01-3304
F/A-22 Sustainability is critical for weapon system mission success and operational base sustainability. Sustainability is a systems based framework which integrates environment, health, and community issues into weapon system design, performance and lifecycle. This presentation identifies proactive F/A-22 Sustainability accomplishments and quantifies ESH/community footprint reductions, using The Natural Step sustainability model. Topics include transformational performance efficiencies, Hazardous Materials Program implementation, design for environment, proactive quantified risk assessment process, and demilitarization and disposal. Support of pilot and maintainer safety, community needs, and Air Force base site activation and sustainment are discussed. F/A-22 Sustainability reduces F/A-22 total program ownership costs, by proactively reducing the lifecycle environment, health and community footprint.
