Making Data Work for MRO

Damage extraction and mapping tasks are significantly reduced with NLign Analytics tools. Digital photos from most modern cameras can be mapped to 3D models automatically to precisely pinpoint damage locations.

Location data generated in this way can be exported to structural analysis packages such as ANSYS. This innovation alone is already saving the US Navy more than $1 million in labor costs per year for just one type of aircraft.

NLign tools also make it simple to analyze repair data for multiple aircraft, helping engineers identify preventive maintenance opportunities, monitor trends, and improve the overall health of any aircraft fleet.

The Future of Aerospace Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul

  • Greater aircraft availability

    Reduced repair and engineering time gets planes back in the air faster, increasing military readiness and private sector profitability.

  • Rapid structure analysis

    Snapshots from most digital cameras can be mapped to 3D models, enabling precise damage location. Repair tasks that once took the US Navy 1-2 days can now be completed in an hour.

  • Seven-digit savings

    The US Navy saves more than $1 million in labor costs each year on just one of the aircraft fleets they manage with NLign Analytics software.
