The U.S. Army has selected Trident Systems' predictive maintenance technology as the winner of a combat vehicle-focused topic area for a competition under the military branch's Small Business Innovation Research initiative.

Trident said Thursday it will receive funding to develop its Predictive Maintenance Analyzer as part of the Army xTech SBIR effort's “Topic F: Condition Based Maintenance for Combat Vehicles“ track focused on improving methods for forecasting component failure to boost operational readiness.

The company will proceed to Phase II efforts for PMA, which works to autonomously send data on vehicle health to maintenance staff and operators to identify system parts in need of repairs.

James O'Looney, vice president of Trident's integrated C4I systems business unit, said that PMA is meant to help address safety concerns in warfighter vehicles while optimizing maintenance costs.

Trident's selection for funding builds on its prior efforts to provide CBM technologies for unmanned and manned tactical platforms across the Navy, Marine Corps, Army and Special Operations Command.

The Army selected Trident for direct-to-phase II activities following three evaluation rounds that concluded in November.
