Aircraft readiness to be improved using AINews
January 16, 2020
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. C3.ai, an artificial intelligence (AI) software provider for accelerating digital transformation, announced a five-year agreement with the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) to deliver C3 Readiness for Aircraft, an AI-based software application that increases the readiness and availability of aircraft to accomplish their missions.
By using machine learning algorithms to monitor high-priority subsystems for risk of failure and predict the requirements for parts at air bases and depots, C3 Readiness for Aircraft is intended to provide predictive maintenance and a near real-time view of aircraft health.
Maintainers could be made available and prepared for work, and operations personnel could ensure that the right parts are available at the right time and location. With this application, C3.ai hopes that organizations could expand the use of existing aircraft and reduce the cost and time associated with unexpected maintenance.
C3 Readiness for Aircraft operates on the C3 AI Suite, an integrated software platform, which allows the DoD to integrate and unify large amounts data, and make it available for use by machine learning algorithms for insights that improve operations and provide situational awareness.
