Sustaining Balance

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center�s B-1 Program Office in coordination with the Product Support Engineering Division and C-5 community, is leading the way as an initial pilot program participant for Condition Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+). The B-1 reached a significant milestone with the initial fielding of the first set of predictive maintenance algorithms across the fleet. CBM+ B-1 aircraft are equipped with a state-of-the-art on-board sensor system that generates and collects large amounts of data. These sensors record fault codes and other data points, allowing analysts and engineers to predict the health status of the aircraft components being monitored. An automated CBM+ fleet health dashboard, released in beta mode via the Amazon Web Services GovCloud, ingests, translates, and processes data direct from the field to expedite engineering investigations.
