Abstract
Impact Technologies, in collaboration with a world class team of information management practitioners, test equipment/TPS manufacturers, diagnostic modelers, and platform integration experts, proposes to develop and demonstrate a real-time remote diagnostics environment for SPO and OEM support of forward deployed Air Force maintenance operations. This will include the design and development of a system architecture that enables a virtual assembly of resources to resolve troublesome diagnostic issues by employing open data architectures, intelligent model-based reasoners, standardized networked services, and standards-based information exchange. The system will integrate key aspects of network-centric access and control of aircraft data buses, test equipment, portable maintenance aids, information systems, and other off-board data sources with real-time, remote, live subject matter expertise, bolstered by dynamic model-based reasoning. A Phase I prototype demonstration will be delivered that will use a PMA or ATS and selected electronic LRU(s) to illustrate the feasibility of the remote electronics test application capabilities. Eventual outcomes of this program will include: improved diagnostic reasoning and ambiguity reduction for fewer CND and RTOK instances, greater operational availability and support cost reduction, greater information availability and continuity for improved repair at all levels of maintenance, and increased effectiveness of forward deployed maintenance operations.
