Abstract:

REPAIR OF SHIPBOARD MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT REQUIRES INFORMATION AND EXPERTISE NOT EASILY AVAILABLE TO SHIPBOARD MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL. WHAT INFORMATION THAT IS AVAILABLE IS GENERALLY EMBEDDED IN TECHNICAL MANUALS OR MAINTENANCE/REPAIR CARDS THAT ARE DIFFICULT TO DECIPHER, BULKY, AND SOMETIMES HARD TO MAINTAIN. A SYSTEM THAT ALLOWED FOR IMPROVED MAINTENANCE AIDING AND GUIDANCE TO NON-EXPERTS WOULD PROVIDE A MORE RELIABLE AND BROADLY AVAILABLE CAPABILITY, WHICH WOULD ENHANCE SAFETY, REDUCE COSTS, AND IMPROVE OPERATIONAL READINESS. UNDER TWO PHASE I SBIR CONTRACTS FOR THE USAF (F33615-86-C-5169 AND -5170), THE FEASIBILITY FOR A PORTABLE EXPERT SYSTEM AS A MAINTENANCE AID FOR THE FIELD REPAIR TECHNICIAN IN THE INSPECTION AND REPAIR OF COMPOSITES, WAS DEMONSTRATED USING AN OFF-THE-SHELF EXPERT SYSTEM SHELL AND A PC CLASS LAPTOP PORTABLE COMPUTER. IT IS PROPOSED TO BUILD ON THE WORK AND DEMONSTRATE A MAINTENANCE ADVISOR/TRAINER FOR ONBAORD SHIP USE. IT WILL BE PORTABLE, HAVE VOICE OPERATION, INCORPORATE THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY IN DATA STORAGE, GRAPHICS, AND INTERACTIVE DISPLAYS. IT WILL DEMONSTRATE A SMALL SELECTED SET OF CURRENT MAINTENANCE AIDS.
