The Joint Intermittent Testing Working Group (JIT WG) ‘s general purpose is to work together to advance intermittent technology and address electronics intermittence across the DoD sustainment enterprise.
Electronics maintenance is a leading driver of weapon systems non-availability, accounting for over $10B in Fy18 sustainment costs. It is not uncommon for up to fifty percent of the electronic components entering maintenance to be No-Fault-Found (NFF); exacerbating electronics availability issues and resulting in over 278,000 days of end-item systems non-availability and approximately $3B in non-value-added sustainment costs annually.
The JIT WG is championing a DoD initiative to rapidly promulgate intermittence detection and isolation capabilities.
