Mikros Systems completes first US Navy’s Littoral Combat System installation

Mikros Systems has successfully completed the first ship and shore installation and testing of its ADEPT Distance Support Sensor Suite (ADSSS) on the Littoral Combat Ship USS Independence.

ADSSS provides condition-based maintenance for mission-critical complex distributed systems using smart sensors, model-based prognostics and secure fault-tolerant networking.

ADSSS’s model-based prognostics framework converts large amounts of data into actionable information for operations, maintenance and logistics, while a secure fault-tolerant network helps protect critical operational data.

As installed on LCS 2, ADSSS will use Mikros’ proprietary model-based Prognostics Framework technology to monitor combat system elements to detect and predict on-ship system failures and apply predictive analytics to on-shore systems to detect broader maintenance trends and patterns across the fleet.

ADSSS Program Manager Lori Ogles said: “Mikros has been a proud partner of the US Navy for over fifteen years.

“We are honoured to continue to support the readiness of US Navy combat systems with our condition-based maintenance solution and we look forward to expanding the ADSSS technology to additional LCS and U. Naval platforms.”
