Aircraft Fluid Service Units

Aircraft Fluid Service Units

The Aircraft Fluid Service Units (AFSUs) are a family of portable fluid servicing units used for servicing aircraft engines, gearboxes, transmissions, and hydraulic systems with appropriate engine oils, transmission, and hydraulic fluids used by the Organizational and Intermediate levels of maintenance both at sea and ashore. Each type AFSU is color coded and provided specific bulk servicing characteristics to minimize the risk of incorrect fluid servicing and reduce hazardous material procurement and hazardous waste disposal costs. Initial Operating Capability (IOC) achieved May 2009.

Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS)

CASS

The Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS) is the Navy’s original station in the CASS standard automatic test equipment family. CASS provides shore-based and afloat intermediate and depot level maintenance and repair capabilities for all naval aircraft, ship and submarine electronics systems. Fielded since 1994, CASS has been modernized through the years to ensure maintenance support for the current fielded Navy inventory of systems. CASS will begin to be phased out when eCASS, the most recent version of the CASS family, begins fielding in 2017. Five hundred and fifty-three stations are used by naval aviation. CASS is also in use at Naval Sea Systems Command activities and in nine foreign countries.
