Rolls-Royce launches smartphone app

Posted on 29 Sep 2019 and read 755 times
Rolls-Royce launches smartphone app Rolls-Royce has developed an innovative app that will allow users to report foreign-object debris (FOD — a common cause of engine damage) — with their smartphones.

This is the result of a research contract awarded by the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and funded by the US Marine Corps (USMC).

The app allows marines to report FOD quickly and efficiently.

Using their phone, they will be able to provide high-quality images linked to an accurate GPS location.

This data is sent to a central database for analysis.

Paul Craig, president of defence services at Rolls-Royce, said: “This is a first for our business, and it demonstrates our ability to develop pioneering technologies that will enhance safety and efficiency — and deliver a cultural change for our customers.

It will also provide a platform for us to ‘springboard’ into other services.”

Jonathan Sides, senior design engineer at the US Naval Air Warfare Center, said: “FOD is a ‘top removal driver’ for naval aviation, costing over $100 million per year.

“The introduction of the Rolls-Royce FOD app to aid maintainers, inform decisions and reduce workload is a critical step forward in the Navy’s collaborative strategy toward eliminating FOD.”

Rolls-Royce Defence (www.rolls-royce.com) teamed up with Calvium Ltd — a digital technology agency based in Bristol (UK) — to deliver the FOD app.
