On 15 of February 2008, the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and EADS parties, represented by EADS Singapore Research and Technology Centre, Eurocopter and its Singaporean subsidiary Eurocopter South East Asia, jointly announced in Singapore, a 3-year collaborative research programme addressing Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM). The main goal of this research program is to develop and to demonstrate new capabilities of advanced technologies / methodologies required to enable CBM for RSAF AS332 military helicopter fleet. The key benefits of this international collaboration, involving centres of excellence in research and advanced technology development based in both Singapore and Europe, are aircraft availability, maintenance effort reduction, and cost savings. EuroHUMS™, an advanced health and usage monitoring system (HUMS), will be used to extract and manage relevant data for establishing a condition-based maintenance plan while ensuring continued airworthiness.
