Integrated Systems Health Management (ISHM) is the acquisition and exploitation of information on environmental conditions, asset attributes, usage, logistics, and cost to enable better decisions on life-cycle support.
It is most successfully applied to enhance the management of high-value military assets such as aircraft, ships, armored vehicles and radar installations. ISHM is multidisciplinary and includes the comprehensive measurement, algorithmic analysis, and intuitive presentation of information by an ISHM system. Simply installing technology does not necessarily enhance military capability. A rigorous systems engineering approach is needed to develop ISHM capability and realize its full benefits.
The mission of this technical team is to provide a full view of the state-of-the-art practice of ISHM across land, sea and air domains for any type of asset. The aim of the workshop is to gather and compare approaches from across all NATO nations describing the contributors to ISHM capability and their impact on military capability.
It is expected that the affordability and contribution of assets to military capability can be better maintained, managed and maximized through an ISHM approach. In this context it is important that the ISHM systems of NATO partners be interoperable.
Participants are asked to talk about:
• Current capabilities with associated benefits and limitations;
• Aspirational capability requirements with any desired benefits and
potential limitations; and
• Enablers of progress from current to aspirational ISHM capability
