ARL's high tech solutions find and fix what's faulty in military systems (Part 1)

Condition-based maintenance, or CBM, is giving the Army a more effective way of identifying when a part, like a helicopter bearing, or a component, like a helicopter tail rotor shaft, needs to be repaired or replaced, which Army Research Laboratory researchers say is not only more cost-effective but most importantly, a safer Soldier solution. In this two-part series, ARL cameras travel to research sites in Maryland, Ohio and New Jersey to spotlight how system maintenance is being improved from once time-scheduled maintenance checks toward condition-based maintenance.
