  • David F. Ellicks AFCPCO

2
Status of Bomb Renovation Processes
  • Automated Wire Arc Spray Systems (85/15
    Zinc/Aluminum) For General-Purpose Bomb
    Renovation
  • 30 Year Corrosion Protection
  • Kadena AB, Okinawa (1996)
  • Andersen AFB, Guam (2000)
  • Blue Grass Army Depot, Kentucky (2002)


3
AFCPCO Takes Lead in Coating General Purpose
Bombs For the USAF
  • AFCPCO Introduced the USAF To Metalizing
  • General Purpose Bombs
  • Accepted By Both The USAF and U.S. Navy
  • New Production Being Metalized At McAlester
  • Army Depot Oklahoma
  • Renovations Being Done At Kadena AB Okinawa,
    Bluegrass Army Depot Kentucky

4
Survey Finds Problems
  • Corrosion Survey Conducted Spring 01
  • Found Kadena Plant and Andersen Plant Not
    working.
  • Formed Team To Survey Problems and Propose Fixs
  • Team Briefs Hq. USAF/ILM Hq. PACAF/LG, and AFCPCO
  • AFCPCO Directs Repair Of Kadena Plant

  • Processing Approx. 60 Bombs Per Day
  • Looking To Upgrade Reno Plant And Expand
    Workload
  • Process Specification Developed And Is Being
    Used By BGAD Personnel

Conclusion
  • Metallizing Process Works And Is Providing
    Outstanding Corrosion Protection To Bombs
    Processed At Kadena and Bluegrass
  • Andersen Is Out Of Commission But Can Be
    Restored To Operational Status
  • Repair
  • Reconfiguration/Simplification
