Abstract

The proposed Phase II SBIR project is the continued development of software that provides a unified, transparent engineering and logistics data environment for use in F-35 composite aircraft part maintenance. It will, for the first time, inject high powered engineering analysis tools into the aircraft repair environment, and assemble the information gathered into datasets and formats readily accessed and used by engineering, for evaluation of repair trends and detection of needed design modifications, and by program managers and logistics analysts, to assess logistics needs and fleet aircraft support requirements based on the frequency and types of repairs experienced over time.
