AMaSS is based on the concept of a Critical Item (CI), defined as "a component or a product whose failure can significantly affect safety, operating success orrepair/replacement costs." AMaSS will allow technical personnel to collect complex electronic system characteristics from each CI through remote monitoring, and analyze the data to identify degraded performance and incipient failures. AMaSS provides thefollowing benefits: assists Fleet personnel in identifying problems that threatening Combat System availability, provides Sailors with precise information on impending component failures, augments Sailor's skills with expert shore-based support, increasescomponent life through proactive maintenance strategies, and provides Fleet-wide trending information that can improve system readiness and reduce life cycle costs.Phase I will identify the CIs for the AN/SPY-1 D(V), develop CI performance indicators, i.e., a single signal, or a series of signals that AMaSS can combine, to determine whether a component has failed or needs adjustment, establish the requirements tosend AMaSS information over the Navy Remote Support System (NRSS), and develop an assistance package for the Sailor based on the AN/PSM-93 (V)test set and support from shore-based experts via the NRSS. The Active Monitoring and Sustainability Support(AMaSS) system will help users of complex,
