CHICAGO, Ill. Uptake, industrial artificial intelligence (AI) software company, announced the U.S. Marine Corps will use its Asset IO application to increase the operational readiness of M88 armored recovery vehicles.

The Marine Corps will deploy Uptake's Asset Performance Management (APM) solution, Asset IO, to improve the condition-based monitoring of the M88s, which act as recovery vehicles for impaired ground combat vehicles.

Uptake will leverage M88 asset data to provide preventive maintenance strategies and insights into M88 vehicle health.

This capability is intended to improve the Marine tactical commanders' decision-making while increasing the operational availability of the M88 fleet, and reduce both maintenance costs and hours.
