  4. Just In Time (JIT) Aircraft Maintenance System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF121225

    Roughly 40% of USAF maintenance records have poorly coded work unit codes.This degrades aircraft pre-induction analysis and fleet-wide analysis of top drivers.Manual methods to scrub the data take years to develop for each air platform.Cybernet designed a machine learning algorithm to automatically correct coding errors without expert input.The Smart Data Cleanser (SDC) performed 4 years of work i ...

  5. Landing Gear Fatigue Model K Modification

    SBC: Select Engineering Services            Topic: AF161018

    Air Force landing gear systems are subjected to surface treatment processes (e.g., chrome plating, cadmium plating, anodizing) an indefinite number of times throughout their service life. During these processes, components are exposed to environments and chemicals which affect material surface conditions (e.g., roughness, residual stresses, microstructure) and reduce fatigue life. This reduction i ...
