US M88A2 HERCULES to get AI upgrades

24th March 2020 - 09:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon and Uptake have joined together to develop AI software for predictive maintenance of the BAE Systems M88A2 HERCULES in use by the US Marines.

The new software will process AI data and transfer it to receiver stations over secure Wi-Fi.

Matt Gilligan, VP of Intelligence, Information and Services at Raytheon, stated: ‘Commanders should have data-driven confidence that the vehicles chosen for a critical operation are not trending toward an issue right when it matters most… These kinds of decisions don’t just save dollars and ensure mission success – they save lives.’

By introducing AI-driven predictive maintenance capabilities, the US Marines will be able to improve the long-term health of the M88 and ensure maximum availability rather than relying on event-based decision-making.
