STRATEGIC AUTOMATED COMMAND AND CONTROL SYSTEMS (SACCS) MAINTENANCE
1. Mission Statement. The Primary mission of SACCS Maintenance is to maintain SACCS equipment, which is in support of the worldwide record data command and control communications requirements of the National Command Authority and USSTRATCOM. SACCS is an integral part of the World Wide Military Command and Control System. It is the primary means for dissemination of emergency war orders to ACC's bombers, AMC's tankers, and AFSPACECOM's ICBMs that have a SIOP mission and would align under USSTRATCOM during a nuclear threat situation.
2. Authority. The 21-series of Air Force and command directives contain policy and procedural guidance for the Strategic Automated Command and Control Systems Maintenance function. This standard was developed IAW AFI 38-201.
3. Applicability. This standard applies to peacetime operations only. It covers only maintenance duties (no operator duties), and applies to all units having this function except the following:
3.1. Combat Communications Units.
3.2. Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve units.
3.3. Centralized Repair Activities (CRAs).
3.4. 3380 CS, Keesler AFB MS.
3.5. Locations undergoing AFI 38-203 cost comparison studies will be exempt from application. Both a positive and negative mission variance must be developed for all work within the organization that has undergone a cost comparison study.

6. Application Instructions:
6.1. Determine what equipment configurations are at your location.
6.2. Locate the line on the Configuration Matrix at Attachment 2 that lists the equipment configurations at your base. The matrix identifies all known equipment configuration groupings. If your location maintains a grouping of configurations or system not listed, submit a variance describing the system being maintained; state the rationale for maintaining the system, and the directive requiring your location to maintain it.
6.3. Identify the number of manpower authorizations your location earns according to the Configuration Matrix at Attachment 2.
6.4. Refer to the Standard Manpower Table at Attachment 3 to determine the appropriate skill and grade mix.
7. Statement of Conditions. The following conditions may impact the work center's ability to perform work:
7.1. Climatic Conditions. Extreme temperatures may adversely effect the performance of the equipment, and therefore, increase the frequency of unscheduled maintenance required.
7.2. Physical Layout of Facilities. The work center itself is normally not located with the equipment it maintains. Travel time is required to accomplish work. Climatic conditions affect travel time.
8.1. Definition of Terms:
8.1.1. AWCP. Air Wing Command Post.
8.1.2. BCP. Base Communications Processor.
8.1.3. SCP. Subnet Communications Processor.
8.1.4. SUTE. Soft User Terminal Element.
8.1.5. MBCP. Missile Base Communications Processor.
8.1.6. HUTE. Hard User Terminal Element.
8.2. Level of Service. The Level of Service for each SACCS configuration and variations to those configurations are as follows:
8.2.1. AWCP. Single shift maintenance at 40 hours per week, plus on-call maintenance for unscheduled outages.
8.2.2. BCP. Single shift maintenance at 40 hours per week, plus on-call maintenance for unscheduled outages.
8.2.3. BCP Variation #1. Single shift maintenance at 40 hours per week, plus on-call maintenance for unscheduled outages; with 72 hour response to SUTE.
8.2.4 SCP. Three shift maintenance seven days per week; providing immediate response.
8.2.5. SCP Variation #1. Three shift maintenance seven days per week; providing immediate response for SCP, and dispatch to AWCP in 60 minutes or less.
8.2.6. SCP Variation #2. Three shift maintenance seven days per week; providing immediate response for SCP, and simultaneous dispatch to AWCP and SUTE. This site also maintains a variety of non-standard equipment and supports the mission as the Main Node for the whole network. There is a 60 minute or less response to the AWCP and within 72 hour response to the SUTE.
8.2.7. SUTE. Single shift maintenance at 40 hours per week, plus on-call maintenance for unscheduled outages.
8.2.8. BCP at Missile Sites. Single shift maintenance at 40 hours per week, plus on-call maintenance for unscheduled outages. Manpower authorizations based on two-man crews dispatching to each MBCP simultaneously while two remain in work center.
8.3. Manpower levels are based on the configuration being maintained. Additional equipment considered to be a part of the configuration is not appropriate rationale for submitting a variance. However, variances for the addition or deletion of a configuration should be submitted for review.
