Research Institution
Frontier Technology, Inc. (FTI) supported by Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Training (Lockheed Martin) will develop innovative tools and processes required to leverage electronics prognostics and health management in Navy Automatic Test System environments to enhance electronics maintenance. The underlying goal is to combine the UUT data and system knowledge collected by the ATS with that available from the Unit Under Test (UUT) to enhance system prognostics and improve operational availability (Ao) of the UUT while controlling maintenance costs. To meet this objective, the FTI team will apply a foundation of data fusion, advanced diagnostics and predictive analytic technologies that have been successfully applied as part of a prognostic solution to weapon system electronic components. This technology foundation can be used to integrate data from multiple sources to determine the performance characteristics of the UUT, correctly isolate and identify (or confirm) degrading or failed components, predict future performance expectations and report results to the interested stakeholders. It will be augmented by standards knowledge and ATS expertise from Lockheed Martin. At the completion of Phase I, the FTI team will have developed and demonstrated a proof of concept system using selected UUTs and CASS as the DoD test system.
