Camber Joins Humaware to Deliver Advanced Aircraft Maintenance Health and Usage Monitoring Technologies

HUNTSVILLE, AL--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - Camber Corporation, a leading provider of aviation engineering and technical support services, has entered into teaming arrangements with Universal Pipe Enterprises, the developer of its Humaware technology and a principal developer of advanced technologies for use in Aircraft Maintenance Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS).

HUMS technology monitors and records key rotor, engine, gearbox, power, and usage data critical in understanding the current health of operating aircraft. Humaware has developed reliable and robust technology to enable these HUMS data to be utilized effectively in Condition Based Maintenance programs, generally known as CBM+. This will add considerable value to existing programs and enable customers to use prognostics to forecast maintenance sufficiently early to enhance readiness and reduce Operating and Support (O&S) costs.

"Following successful evaluation of the Humaware technology by the U.S. Army, I am looking forward to working as part of the Camber team to provide this technology to the Aerospace and Defense community," said Kenneth Pipe, CEO of Humaware. "Military platforms fly under the harshest of conditions under circumstances demanding the utmost in aircraft reliability and performance. They are a most deserving target in our application efforts, and a natural focus of the Humaware - Camber collaboration."

"Camber Corporation enjoys a distinguished history supporting aviation Warfighters across the services and is particularly encouraged by Humaware technologies and the special capabilities they bring to the HUMS technical effort," said Joe Alexander, president of Camber Corporation. "We see Ken Pipe and his team as technology pioneers offering immediate advantages to our helicopter customers in the Army and Navy, and very strong potential benefit in our existing condition-based maintenance efforts in other manned and unmanned aviation programs."
