The objective of this study is to determine the most cost effective approach to the Army requirement for an Automatic Inspection Diagnostic and Prognostic System AIDAPS. The system must automatically diagnose mechanical malfunctions, warn of impending mechanical failures, and eliminate unnecessary inspections or part removals. It must also permit the change of aircraft components on an on-condition basis instead of a time change basis. The ultimate goals of the program are to reduce aircraft life cycle ownership costs, increase aircraft availability and improve aircraft safety.
