Boeing is set to begin integrating its new AnalytX data analytics tool into all Boeing Defence Australia support contracts, the company announced on 4 September.

Boeing’s AnalytX systems include a platform-agnostic data analytics engine that uses international and local fleet data to provide predictive maintenance insights.

According to the company, Australia’s CH-47F Chinook fleet would be among the first to adopt the new capabilities.

In developing this expertise domestically, Boeing Defence Australia is able to incorporate analytics tools on Boeing and non-Boeing systems - airborne, ground-based and maritime - for customers throughout the region.

Murray Brabrook, integrated services and support general manager, Boeing Defence Australia, said: ‘This technology will give the Australian Defence Force access to more platform data than ever before – enabling Boeing to increase fleet readiness, safety and reliability while lowering maintenance costs.

‘Our maintainers and engineers can now take advantage of huge quantities of operational data from large international fleets, like the Chinook, and translate those data patterns into strategic insights for a local fleet of ten.’
