REFERENCES C. INFORMATION Discussion Mobile Facilities (MF) Management : I. Mobile Facilities (MF) were initially provided by NAVAIR to house aviation maintenance equipment and functions only in the shore environment. The use of these facilities has been expanded to accommodate other functions, both ashore and afloat, in myriad operational and support scenarios. This topic discusses the requirement by addressing MF Program principles, definitions, policies, funding, organizational responsibilities, program administration and other pertinent information. 2) Mobile Facilities (MF) Management: a) Concepts and Principles: i) An MF is a habitable, re-locatable, rigid, expandable or non-expandable tactical shelter or van designated to provide environmental control and to contain equipment and functions in support of aviation weapon system maintenance and tactical aviation operations. ii) . The standard MF measurements are 8X8X20 feet with the capability of double-wide or triple-wide configuration. The overall MF Program is managed by NAVAIR and includes the MF and its ancillary equipment. The principal applications of an MF are to provide movable housing for aviation weapon system maintenance, to house SE or support functions, and to provide supply support facilities. MFs are also used to house equipment in support of aviation operational and tactical requirements that include automatic data processing functions. MFs are used aboard ship and ashore. iii) Navy requirements for MFs and ancillary equipment are normally developed on an individual weapon system basis and for specific applications, however, wide-spread use for Navy activities is not nearly as robust as the Marine Corps requirements. Marine Corps requirements are generated from the Table of Basic Allowance (TBA) provided by the Commandant of the Marine Corps to support Marine Corps expeditionary deployment concepts.

Many Marine Corps maintenance work centers, such as Avionics, hydraulic repair and
