The UH-1H helicopter Test Bed Program was accomplished at the US Army Aeronautical Depot Maintenance Center, Corpus Christi, Texas, during the period 4 October 1970 through 17 December 1971. The program objective was to determine the feasibility of state-of-the-art hardware to automatically accomplish inspection, diagnostic and prognostic maintenance functions on selected subsystems of the UH-1H helicopter. The Hamilton Standard hardware for the program is identified as Airborne Integrated Diagnostic System AIDS. Helicopter components, both serviceable and degraded, were run and monitored for malfunction discrimination by the AIDS in ARADMAC test cells and in two UH-1H aircraft. Trending for prognosis was attempted while accumulating flight time on two additional UH-1H aircraft utilizing serviceable components.
