Boeing will begin integrating new data analytics tools into all Boeing Defence Australia support contracts.
The Boeing AnalytX systems, featuring new technologies developed by Boeing in Australia, include a platform-agnostic data analytics engine using international and local fleet data to provide predictive maintenance insights.
Murray Brabrook, integrated services and support general manager, Boeing Defence Australia, said Australia’s CH-47F Chinook fleet would be among the first to adopt the new capabilities.
“This technology will give the Australian Defence Force access to more platform data than ever before – enabling Boeing to increase fleet readiness, safety and reliability while lowering maintenance costs,” Brabrook commented.
“Our maintainers and engineers can now take advantage of huge quantities of operational data from large international fleets, like the Chinook, and translate those data patterns into strategic insights for a local fleet of 10,” he added.
Boeing said that developing this expertise domestically means Boeing Defence Australia is able to incorporate analytics tools on Boeing and non-Boeing systems – airborne, ground-based and maritime – for customers throughout the region.
