WASHINGTON. The U.S. Navy announced that it has chosen Lockheed Martin and enterprise applications company IFS to deliver an intelligent maintenance solution that will aim to help power its digital transformation of multiple legacy systems into a single modernized logistics information system.
According to the company, the IFS solution comprises capabilities for planning and executing maintenance, repair, and overhaul of more than 3,000 assets including aircraft, ships, and land-based equipment.
The Naval Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (N-MRO) solution combines artificial intelligence (AI), digital twin capabilities, and predictive analytics to anticipate and react to potential equipment failures before they happen.
With the added support of software developer Beast Code, officials claim the solution will initially be fielded at multiple U.S. Navy sites to help sailors and Marine Corps maintainers break down operational silos and work towards a common maintenance workflow across all ship and aircraft platforms.
