QNA to Provide US Army with a Condition-Based Maintenance Program

QinetiQ North America (QNA) announced today that it has been awarded a contract to deliver a Condition-Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+) pilot system supporting the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) in Warren, Mich. LCMC was formerly known as Tank-automotive and Armaments Command.  The three-year contract has an estimated value of $17 million.

In the CBM+ program, QNA will deliver analytical tools and an autonomic logistics system to collect and analyze operational data on 2,000 tactical wheeled vehicles worldwide.  The data and tools will allow personnel responsible for logistics, operations and maintenance to provide more timely and accurate maintenance decisions and integrated logistics processes. QNA’s CBM processes, data collection and analysis procedures and tools are based on ISO 9001:2008, CMMI Level III and Lean Six Sigma certifications.

Leveraging more than 19 years of successful performance on similar programs, QNA’s technical approach will give the Army an efficient, innovative and cost effective CBM+ solution for the Tactical Wheeled Vehicle Pilot Program.

“Our extensive experience with the Army in field maintenance data collection is very important to successfully supporting TACOM’s CBM+ requirements under this new contract,” says David Shrum, EVP and general manager of QNA’s Engineering and Life Cycle Management business unit. “That experience and our detailed knowledge of the customer and their mission will allow us to provide the U.S. Army with a low-cost solution that maximizes efficiency.”

Recently, QNA has provided CBM programs for the U.S. Army Materiel Systems Analysis Activity and the Army Aviation and Missile Life Cycle Management Command.
