PMA-276 translates Marine Corps requirements into safe, effective, and supportable weapon systems for the Marine Light/Attack Helicopter community. PMA-276 manages the cradle-to-grave procurement, development, support, fielding and disposal of Marine Corps rotary wing close air support, anti-armor, armed escort, armed/visual reconnaissance and fire support systems.
The H-1 program office of PMA-276 is staffed with Marine Corps service members working with government civilians and contractors on the UH-1Y Venom and AH-1Z Viper, which support ground troops with attack and utility lift missions. Since H-1 aircraft are still in production, current requirements must provide the capabilities necessary for warfighters to perform their mission. And as the H-1 reaches full production capability, new requirements must also be taken into consideration and integrated into the program.
HTii provides onsite and offsite support to PMA-276 through requirements management, Systems Engineering Development & Implementation Center (SEDIC) checklist tailoring and in-service engineering support.
For requirements management, HTii implements, configures and manages IBM’s Dynamic Object-Oriented Requirements System (DOORS) database in adherence to AIR-4.1 guidance. Utilizing DOORS, HTii provides the program office in-depth, comprehensive management of past and current requirements along with the ability to incorporate and trace new requirements as they are developed.
For SEDIC checklists, HTii provides complete start-to-finish management of checklist tailoring and scoring that drastically reduces the time program personnel need to spend on these vital but arduous processes.
And for engineering support, HTii defines, designs and implements better tools and processes to support in-service engineering efforts. The goal of HTii is to provide our customers with an integrated picture of H-1 requirements that will allow senior decision-makers to make well-informed design decisions that maximize the aircraft’s warfighting capabilities and minimize the risk to the young men and women who fly and maintain it all over the world.
