Apache: Faster, More Effective Maintenance Comes with STAMP


Obtaining the full maintenance picture of the Apache helicopter during flight is now possible for mechanics with the Smart Tool for Aviation Maintenance Picture (STAMP) system.
 
STAMP provides near-real time fault information based on high-fidelity, system-generated reports, an improvement on the current process of waiting for the Apache to return home and relying on the pilots to remember to write up faults after landing. 
 
Having actual system information earlier in the process does three main things. It: 
  •  helps reduce or eliminate possible misdiagnoses.
  •  enables necessary personnel, tools and parts to be correctly identified and assembled.
  •  reduces trips and unnecessary equipment transport to and from the hangar.
All of which contribute to a faster maintenance turnaround time.
 
STAMP is scheduled to start fielding in the second half of FY23. The new TM number, NSN and part number will be TM 1-4920-254-13&P, NSN 4920-01-698-5843 and PN 1080750.
 
You can view all the details on STAMP in the Apache Newsletter (Mar 22) HERE.
