Failure of such devices in a land-based plant or facility is disruptive enough. At sea, and in combat situations, breakdowns can endanger the crew. The initiative, which is headed by the Defense Innovation Unit, builds on previous Department of Defense AI-based predictive maintenance programs for the Army and Air Force.
