Abstract
Sentient will develop a unique and innovative prognostics and health management architecture, called SAGEmaintainer for Navy unmanned aerial system (UAS). SAGEmaintainer is a three part solution for PHM on unmanned systems. First is the PHM open architecture system does not rely on pilot feedback, but instead on accurate models for health prediction. Next the SAGEmaintainer Design provides standards based end user control of the PHM system design and allowing easy update of fielded PHM designs. Bandwidth and PHM system performance metrics are automatically assessed during the design process. Finally the AutoReasoning technology reduces the work load of the maintainer and decision process of the logistics manager by automatically assessing the health of the system and determining required maintenance actions and schedule. This technology will be developed and deployed on both a local PC or over the cloud for development activities, then in the maintenance system for deployment to the fleet.
