KEEPING THE F-16 IN THE AIR
The F16, like most aircraft, carries an Inertial Navigation Unit (INU) that is powered by a separate battery. This independent power source assures reliable operation even if the main battery fails. Lockheed Martin specifies a maximum shelf life of five years for this nickel-cadmium battery. The US Navy had purchased a large stock of INU batteries earlier. During the Yugoslavian war, they realized to their dismay that the five-year limit was being exceeded and the batteries could no longer be used. Grounding all F16s was discussed at one of their high-level meetings. This is when Lockheed Martin called Cadex to assist in the testing of these batteries in storage. Cadex supplied the US Air Force with several battery analyzers. With the analyzer’s Prime function, the US Air Force verified that the INU battery can in fact exceed the five-year limit. The battery specifications were changed for the upcoming mission, the F16 kept flying and the war was won.
