  • Army researchers exploring prognostics and diagnostics solutions to find and fix military and commercial maintenance problems

    July 05, 2012

    The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is exploring new technologies for a maintenance concept that's been around for decades that when fully implemented will replace the time-scheduled maintenance with a process used to repair or replace parts and systems only when they need to be fixed, removed, and replaced. Condition-based maintenance (CBM) is giving...
