U.S. Navy LCS adds predictive maintenance analytics after installation

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa. Engineers at Mikros Systems Corp. completed ship and shore installation, as well as testing of the company's ADEPT Distance Support Sensor Suite (ADSSS) on the Littoral Combat Ship USS Independence (LCS-2).

ADSSS provides condition-based maintenance for mission-critical complex distributed systems using smart , model-based prognostics and secure fault-tolerant networking. ADSSS’s model-based prognostics framework converts large amounts of data into actionable information for operations, maintenance and logistics, while a secure fault-tolerant network helps protect critical operational data.

As installed on 2, ADSSS will use Mikros’ Prognostics Framework technology to monitor combat system elements to detect and predict on-ship system failures and apply to on-shore systems to detect broader maintenance trends and patterns across the fleet.
