Increase military asset readiness with cognitive technology

Readiness - the US military’s ability to perform its required missions everywhere, all the time — is shaped by many factors. In addition to the abilities of military personnel, readiness includes the performance of military equipment. The armed services face monumental equipment and asset readiness challenges regarding uptime and availability, including the sheer volume and range of equipment and the impact of budget cuts on equipment health and deferred maintenance.

Teaching Watson Equipment Maintenance

Cognitive Equipment Advisor combines state-of-the-art technology, natural language processing, and machine learning to transform equipment maintenance.  IBM Watson can consume massive amounts of data from a wide range of sources – manuals, videos, sensor data – providing maintainers with the ability to predict or prescribe repairs.  With this knowledge, maintainers can get equipment back on the field with speed and confidence.

Don't let vehicle and equipment downtime impede your mission

What does this technology mean for DoD? A cognitive equipment advisor like IBM Watson can address military readiness by enabling us to think about it in the short-, medium- and long-term. IBM Watson helps you answer hard questions like “how do I meet my operational requirements today and build readiness for future threats, or how do I pull one unit out of an area of operations and bring another in?  Ultimately, this solution helps with workflow and aligning technology to assist that workflow.
