During the 10th Multiple Launch Rocket System Maintenance Officers Meeting (MLRS MOM) held in Tromsø, Norway in May of this year Steve Docker and Russ Kirkham of AES made a “Learning Through Experience” presentation on the subject of condition based asset management.

The three-day meeting, which is held annually, is a forum for discussing technical and logistical issues in relation to the MLRS, which is currently operated by ten countries.

At the invitation of the NATO Maintenance and Supply Agency and the UK Ministry of Defence the AES team presented their work on British Army Challenger 2 transmission units, outlining the benefits achieved and discussed with delegates how a similar approach may be of benefit to the MLRS.
