Abstract
Tactical Generators are profuse consumers of fuel. As the generators wear, fuel consumption increases. Increases in fuel consumption mean more logistics demand and delivery of fuel through potentially hostile areas to forward tactical bases represents an operational challenge. Sustainment of Army operations, which make large demands on power, becomes dependent on sustainment of the power generation and management system. Airtronics Inc partners with RadioData Corporation and outlines a plan to develop a generator diagnostics and prognostics system
