Universal Synaptics is the industry leader in detecting and isolating intermittent faults that cause No Fault Found (NFF) test results through Intermittent Fault Detection (IFD) technology. Once detected and isolated by the Intermittent Fault Detection & Isolation System 2.0 (IFDIS 2.0) or the portable Intermittent Fault Detector (IFD), intermittent faults are taken to root cause by maintainers allowing for increased Mission Capable rates to better support the Warfighter. IFDIS 2.0 and the portable IFD provided by Universal Synaptics eliminate: repeated returns of the same assembly for repair, excessive spare part stock to cover units out of service, downtime to replace units, scraping costs associated with unrepairable units, and wasted test time using technology that cannot detect intermittent faults.
Intermittent Fault Detection (IFD)
Lockheed Martin and Universal Synaptics have partnered to help the Services reduce the $3B annual expense related to intermittent / No Fault Found (NFF) test results. Intermittent Fault Detection has been objectively proven to reduce NFF, improve operational readiness, and reduce maintenance costs.
