Prognostics is a process that permits the reliability of a system to be assessed and predicted in its actual application conditions. In this paper, the use of prognostics for a military line replaceable unit is presented. This study is part of an effort funded by the Office of Secretary of Defense to develop an interactive supply chain system for the U.S. military. The objective is to integrate prognostics, wireless communication, and databases through a web portal to enable cost-effective maintenance and replacement of electronics.
