Lockheed, SAS join forces to bring next-gen analytics to F-35 sustainment

Lockheed Martin and SAS are collaborating to bring next generation analytics to a variety of Lockheed-built aircraft including the F-35 and C-130J.

The effort will focus on integrating artificial intelligence and digital transformation into sustainment activities for the F-35, the C-130J and the LM-100J programs.

“SAS analytics will infuse decision-making with new insights derived from advanced machine learning, deep learning and natural language processing,” the companies said in a release.

Data scientists and engineers will develop self-service applications to support predictive maintenance, fleet performance management, intelligent diagnostics and supply chain optimization.

The companies will be using the SAS Viya product.

“These new capabilities will help the F-35 program deliver a total performance-based logistics sustainment solution that meets warfighter needs and significantly reduces total ownership cost," said Tim Matthews, vice president of F-35 sustainment operations at Lockheed in a release.

The companies declined to put a dollar value on the collaboration effort.
