This Prognostic Health Monitor (PHM) is a solid-state device that records the environmental parameters (vibration, temperature, humidity & air pressure) of the equipment in which it is mounted. This data can be used to evaluate the actual environment experienced by an item and predict its remaining service life, after which it will require replacement, maintenance or refurbishment.

BAE Systems facilities in both the United States and United Kingdom are responsible for PHM integration. Besides being a member of the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) PHM Consortium.at the University of Maryland, BAE is also supporting a PHM research project at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom. The project titled “Advanced Diagnostic and Prognostic Techniques for Complex Systems” aims to investigate and develop methodologies and techniques to predict useful life in complex systems. The top-level objective is to deliver an integrated health management system that is compatible with emerging technologies that provide system architectures that are modular, reconfigurable, and fault tolerant.
