Gastops announced that the Rotary, Aerospace and Surveillance Systems Division of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) has purchased nine ChipCHECK® units to help maximize equipment readiness, improve maintenance efficiency and reduce costs.

The Australian Department of Defence and Defence Aviation Safety Authority (DASA) validated ChipCHECK® through 2019’s Exercise Talisman Sabre, a bi-annual multi-country exercise that ensures combat readiness and interoperability between the Australian and US Forces. The exercise serves as a platform for investigating new technologies and improving overall capabilities.

ChipCHECK® is a state of the art machinery condition monitoring and analysis technology designed and manufactured by Gastops. Australia’s Rotary, Aerospace and Surveillance Systems Division has chosen ChipCHECK® to give equipment maintenance crews immediate, automated, and local chip analysis.

“The ADF has very demanding standards for new technologies and we are honoured to be selected to be a part of their operations,” said Shaun Horning, President and CEO of Gastops. “ChipCHECK® is changing the way aviation maintenance is performed.”

ADF helicopter operators and maintenance staff will now have the ability to accurately assess an aircraft’s propulsion system health and make real-time maintenance decisions at the flight line, at sea or in any location removed from laboratory support. With ChipCHECK®, the ADF achieves an improved maintenance management capability.

“We are very excited that ChipCHECK® has been adopted by the Rotary, Aerospace and Surveillance Systems Division,” said Stephane Daviault, ChipCHECK® Product Manager. “And we continue to support the ADF’s exploration of additional applications that can benefit from ChipCHECK®.”
