The Navy will now use artificial intelligence (AI) to maintain its fleet of MiG-29K fighter jets.
Health usage and monitoring system uses artificial intelligence to reduce data analysis time, resulting in faster turnaround of aircraft and better maintenance forecasting.
AI-based programme will be showcased at Aero India 2023, scheduled for February 13-17 at Air Force Station Yelahanka, Bengaluru, as part of the “launch of new technology” by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).
In the INS Vikramaditya and INS Vikrant, MiG 29K jets launch and land.
INS Vikrant received the LCA (Navy), the indigenous technology demonstrator fighter, earlier this week.
A twin-engine deck-based fighter jet for the Navy was developed during the landing. Under development is a twin-engine version of the LCA Navy, which will replace the single-engine LCA Navy.
At Aero India 2023, the Navy helicopter, the ALH, will participate in the flying display, while the maritime reconnaissance aircraft, the Boeing P8I, will participate in the static display. A customised graphic, compiled by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), will be presented to the Indian Navy Chief for use as a reference document for undertaking engine repairs on MiG 29K aircraft.
The Navy is also holding a seminar on “Aero armament sustenance”. The aim of this discussion is to determine how to sustain missiles held by the armed forces.
