Boeing will begin integrating new data analytics tools into all Boeing Defence Australia support contracts, enhancing its position as a leading fleet services provider in the region.

The Boeing AnalytX systems, featuring new technologies developed by Boeing in Australia, include a platform-agnostic data analytics engine that uses international and local fleet data to provide predictive maintenance insights.

Murray Brabrook, integrated services and support general manager, Boeing Defence Australia, said Australia’s CH-47F Chinook fleet would be among the first to adopt the new capabilities.

"This technology will give the Australian Defence Force access to more platform data than ever before – enabling Boeing to increase fleet readiness, safety and reliability while lowering maintenance costs," he said.

In developing this expertise domestically, Boeing Defence Australia is able to incorporate analytics tools on Boeing and non-Boeing systems airborne, ground-based and maritime – for customers throughout the region.

"Our maintainers and engineers can now take advantage of huge quantities of operational data from large international fleets, like the Chinook, and translate those data patterns into strategic insights for a local fleet of 10," said Brabrook. 

The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is a versatile, twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopter. Its top speed of 170 knots (315 kilometres per hour) is faster than many contemporary utility and attack helicopters. Its primary roles include troop movement, artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply.

There is a wide loading ramp at the rear of the fuselage and three external-cargo hooks underneath. With more powerful engines, larger composite rotor blades and advanced avionics systems, the latest Chinook is faster than many attack helicopters.
