Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems is the division of the Northrop Grumman Corporation that produces aircraft, UAVs and spacecraft for the US and other nations; including the B-2 Spirit, RQ-4 Global Hawk and T-38 Talon.

“The Digital Risk Twin is unique to PHM Technology, enabling Northrop to digitize its RAMS process which in turn influences their design decisions for the B21 program so they can be made with an understanding of the RAMS implications and their potential impact on Readiness and the cost of Sustainment.“ said Chris Stecki, CEO of PHM Technology.

“By implementing the PHM Technology approach, Northrop will have a more reliable and operationally cost effective aircraft. Something all defence OEMs are trying to achieve for their assets and respective customers.”

“There are a number of unique ‘digital dividends’ that are generated by a model-based RAMS approach, including the digitization of the domain knowledge of the Northrop team to ensure it is accessible for the life of the program, and the ability to drive Causation-based AI capabilities for Predictive Maintenance that we are currently exploring with the Northrop team based on our Syndrome Diagnostics solution for real-time Fault Detection and Isolation”.

“We are proud to be working with the team at Northrop.”
