Rotary Wing Dynamic Component Structural Life Tracking
United States Navy (USN) program offices have struggled with rotorcraft component history tracking for years, and still spend millions in trying to obtain accurate component history and maintenance information. This is mainly due to records that are kept manually through paperwork systems such as Scheduled Removal Component and Assembly Service Record (SRC and ASR) cards, which are prone to human errors. Because of the lack of reliable component histories, penalties must be imposed when such data cannot be validated. By implementing an electronic record keeping system (eSRC and eASR), point-of-entry data validation will enable highly accurate transaction records to be interrogated instantaneously, world-wide by all stakeholders. The eSRC/eASR system will reduce Total Ownership Costs (TOC) through optimum asset life management and maintenance planning. This also satisfies the USN"s end goal of real-time tracking, gathering complete component usage history to accurately predict the life of each component, and subsequently eliminating penalties imposed due to unknown usage histories. Preserving complete component installation and usage history, along with the implementation of advanced prognostics tools can enable Performance Based Logistics (PBL) as well as Condition Based Maintenance (CBM). TDA proposes an innovative architecture for CBM processing, data visualization, data mining, and prognostics, called HeloTrack.
