Shift5 has released an innovative solution to manage the maintenance costs and operational readiness of DoD fleets.

Shift5 has released a new solution for real-time predictive maintenance technology for DoD weapons systems.

The solution combines a hardware and software product so that platform owners and operators may gain insight into their fleet health status. This will decrease maintenance costs and increase operational readiness.

The Shift5 product is made up of a number of components. These can be enhanced and customised to provide data-driven maintenance insights to extend the lifetime and operational availability of systems. They can also reduce reliance on manual, in-person or routine checks.

Shift5 Intake enables full packet data capture from a range of standard serial data bus protocols on both legacy systems and new builds.

Shift5 Engine uses standards-based rules and advanced models to detect and alert anomalies or upcoming maintenance needs.

Shift5 Gauge Cluster is the off-platform dashboarding, search and analytics platform that serves as the user’s touchpoint into their data.

Shift5’s single security appliance protects SDB-dependent systems against cyberattacks and enables operators, commanders, maintainers and incident responders.

According to the company, its solutions provide significantly more mechanical data than what is currently produced by other products with greater detail and higher usability.
