A multi-disciplinary team covering mechanical, materials and information technologies are investigating and developing appropriate technologies for aircraft prognostics and health management (PHM) applications. To integrate the efforts, a framework for PHM has been developed with three major functional blocks: Life Prediction, State Awareness, and Information Management. This framework provides a hierarchy for development and implementation. Achievements and future plans within this framework are presented with specific applications to military legacy systems and future acquisitions. Opportunities are described within some new initiatives for development and implementation.
