The US Navy utilizes Gas Turbine Engines in a variety of propulsion and power generation applications. Despite dramatic shifts in the world defense posture, the basic application requirements for this equipment has not changed. Each ship and her crew operate in potentially hazardous environments, either by threat from man or nature. Because US Navy ships operate around the world, each ship must be self-supported and continue to function in her mission far from repair and maintenance activities. Due to the unique nature of this application, the configuration of the 501-K17 Gas Turbine Generators is constantly under technical review to provide critical technical upgrades. Included in the engineering review process is the requirement to provide integrated logistics support at installation. Interim support packages provide interim logistics products which fulfill the support requirements and maintain configuration control of the Gas Turbine Engines across hull applications without impeding the installation schedule.
