Maintenance/ Monitoring Support Information Tools
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
In this project, we propose to make a handheld tool that supports the maintenance engineer in evaluating the health of equipment or evaluating the scenarios available form sensor data. The unit will be based on a monitoring node with an additional GUI (Graphical User Interface) and firmware to make interaction simple and instantaneous. The proposed units uniqueness is in that it uses on-board processing to analyze data and immediately present the user with graphs, recommendations and access to data on similar scenarios and the outcome. Additionally, the system will allow the user to log their efforts and notes and transfer all this data to a central repository for further analytical analysis. The majority of enabling technology used in the unit comes as a spin-off from the advanced rate of development in the mobile phone industry. Low power and cost microprocessors and microcontrollers will be used to analyze data, run the GUI and communicate with sensors and systems. The coding to interface all the components and database will be also play a major roll in the project. Algorithms to efficiently process and present the data on the hand held unit as well as communicate with a central PC will be developed.
