Abstract: This report documents the study of baseline sensor technology for enabling condition based maintenance plus in Army ground vehicles. The sensor study was driven from Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) conducted on four high cost driver components in Army ground vehicles by Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC). The four high cost driver components in Army ground vehicles as identified by TARDEC are engines, transmissions, batteries, and alternators. This report provides an assessment of current ground vehicle sensor systems and new baseline sensor technologies that may be used to support prognostic/diagnostic fault mode coverage including structural and component health monitoring for enabling condition based maintenance plus (CBM +) strategies to increase the operational availability of Army ground vehicles.
