Acquisition & Sustainment
We have extensive corporate knowledge of Aerospace platform acquisition and full life cycle sustainment requirements and processes. We have field offices near, and have supported work at, all three major USAF Air Logistics Complexes (Hill AFB, Robins AFB, and Tinker AFB). In particular, we have directly supported the A-10 Thunderbolt II’s Precision Engagement (PE) upgrade program, Operational Flight Program (OFP) development and its software releases, flight test support, Electronic Warfare (EW) hardware upgrades, Configuration Management, Engineering Services, and Advisory and Assistance Services (A&AS) support across multiple acquisition disciplines and numerous programs since 2005.
KIHOMAC has provided Life Cycle Sustainment Plan (LCSP) support across numerous platforms to include A‑10, AT-6, B-1, B-52, C-130, C-5, Cruise Missile, E-3, KC-135, F-16, ICBM, QF-4, and U‑2. Through our Predictive Analysis tool we provide a holistic systems approach for early identification of a fleet’s non-mission capable (MICAP) drivers, as well as the timely development of corrective actions to permit their rapid execution. Our goal is to ensure RIGHT PART, RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME to meet warfighter needs. We led the team supporting the A‑10’s field-level Consolidated Install Upgrade Program. Furthermore, we have established ourselves as a leader in technical data cleansing and Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) parts obsolescence resolutions. We provide Time Compliance Technical Order (TCTO) tracking; technical data development, validation and verification, and publication support. We have performed the refurbishment of legacy platform components, both mechanical and metals. Recently, we were selected to provide Engineering Services and Integration support to U-2 Program Office. We have developed and implemented Depot Pre‑Induction inspection plans, as well as maintained and updated engineering baseline data and wiring sustainment on various programs. Most recently we are excited to be providing both mechanical and electrical/electronic component production of a ground-based data cartridge reader used to decipher in-flight data from four types of data cartridges that collect data from F-16, F-16 FMS, F-16 EPAF, F-22, A-10, and B-52 platforms. The project involves all aspects of production management from parts acquisition, to prototype development, First Article acceptance testing, pre-production, Low Rate Production (LRP), and Full Rate Production (FRP).
