DARPA to Expand VEXTEC’s Role in Fielded Fleet Reliability Prediction

Firm’s versatile modeling technology to build on sensor state of the art to enable better vehicle and cost management.

Brentwood, TN, March 19, 2009  DARPA’s vision for the armed forces of the future includes using high tech sensors coupled with advanced modeling to know exactly when aircraft or military systems need to be brought in for maintenance -well before any vehicle failures actually occur. To realize its vision, DARPA is pulling together a diverse cross section of the country’s experts in a variety of fields: large aircraft and turbine engine manufactures, top academic scientists, sensor development companies, and others. VEXTEC has been selected for its specialized material degradation prediction technology. Read more
