AH-64: Reprogramming the Mast Mounted Assembly

Mechanics, the Apache helicopter has many complicated computerized parts.

In the Jul 21 Apache newsletter, issue 96, it states that the mast mounted assembly (MMA) electronically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM), NSN 1220-01-605-5217, requires reprogramming after specific fire control radar (FCR) maintenance tasks are accomplished.

If this reprogramming doesn’t occur, it could negatively impact the accuracy of the fire control radar, but never provide an indication of failure.

Get the details on when and how to obtain a reprogrammed replacement EEPROM from the vendor by clicking on the image below.
