Air Force to develop mobile aircraft diagnostics

The Air Force has tasked NCI Information Systems Inc. of Reston, Va., to assess technologies that electronically deliver diagnostic information to maintenance personnel working on aircraft, the company announced last week.

The Air Force Research Laboratory's Human Effectiveness Directorate, at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, contracted the project, which is worth an estimated $4.3 million, confirmed Barbara Masquelier, chief of logistics for the directorate.

For this contract, NCI will assess tools to deliver information to flightline maintenance technicians diagnosing faulty aircraft equipment. The resulting system will rely on enterprise data management techniques, interactive electronic technical manual platforms and knowledge of diagnostic routines.

NCI's subcontractors for the contract include Lockheed Martin Corp. of Bethesda, Md., Total Quality Systems Inc. of Ogden, Utah, and the University of Dayton Research Institute of Dayton, Ohio.
