Shipboard Wireless Maintenance Assistant

Project Mission | Intellectual Property | Project Status


Cybernet has developed a prototype mobile maintenance system specifically targeted to ship-based Sailors. The Shipboard Wireless Maintenance Assistant (SWMA) provides sailors with on-site, just-in-time access to vital technical data in a variety of ways, including: portable digital displays for graphical data (schematics, IETMs, etc); wireless access to maintenance databases; integrated set of diagnostic tools; and real-time sharing of duplex audio and video between technicians and remote experts. Developed under Phase I and Phase II development contracts, the SWMA system allows multiple technicians to collaborate on a common problem, regardless of their physical location aboard the ship using a handheld communicator with video, audio, text and applications shared over a ship-based network. This system supports technical collaboration between technicians with differing experience levels, leading to faster and more efficient resolution to technical problems on board.


Multimodal input.


Completed for U.S. Navy.
