Recently, Gastops was selected by the Department of National Defence to contribute to the “All Systems Go!” Challenge, an initiative of the Government of Canada’s Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program.
 
The objective of the challenge is to drive innovation in predicting and optimizing maintenance for military platforms through Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) that will support the transition from schedule-based maintenance to Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM), and ultimately, to a truly predictive maintenance regime that will optimize the use of limited maintenance resources while increasing the operational platform availability.
 
To speak more about this announcement and give us an overview of Gastops is Brennan West, Director of Gastops Defence & Aftermarket Business Unit. Brennan has 10 years of experience in the application of reliability centered maintenance to military aircraft. His experience in RCM has helped to contribute to the development of Gastops products and services to meet the most demanding military and commercial aircraft condition monitoring requirements. 
 
If you'd like to connect with Brennan, he will be attending DEFSEC 2021 from Oct. 5-7th and the Canadian Defence Marketplace on Nov. 4th.

Over a hundred years ago, The Boeing Company became a key partner in the Canadian aerospace industry.  Since that time, Boeing has grown to become a leader in the Canadian aerospace industry with 12 locations across the country supporting Boeing’s commercial and defence industries.

 
As our listeners would know, Boeing is one of the contenders for the Future Fighter Capability Project (FFCP), in which the Government of Canada is looking to acquire 88 advanced fighter jets to provide the capability the Canadian Armed Forces needs to ensure the safety and security of Canadians and meet its international obligations.  This is the most significant investment for the Royal Canadian Air Force in more than 30 years.  You can learn more about Boeing's offering for the FFCP here
