The USAF has set itself goals for capability, performance and reliability standards that it must achieve if it is to maintain air superiority. The advent of novel design methodologies and materials has put the spotlight on engine diagnostics and prognostics as an essential element to achieve those goals. The development and implementation of the COEHM Methodology will help meet the set Autonomics goals and the needs of the third millennium. The development of a totally sensed engine real or virrual that provides exact and accurate data will help a COEHM system perform the AI function that is required to derive fast and accurate answers this will enable the maintainers to quickly regenerate an aircraft for it next mission. The COEHM is more than just an approach but an asserted effort to produce a range of compatible EM systems for 2001 and beyond.
