Wearable Computers Move To Flightline
Maintenance is about to change because of new tools maintainers will have at their disposal.
Through a pilot program at the 116th Air Control Wing at Robins Air Force Base GA, 116th Maintenance Group workers are beginning to integrate a new wearable computer, which can be used across the maintenance spectrum.
The small personal computers can be worn either on the chest or hip and are being tested as a possible replacement for printed manuals currently used.
The civilian applications are limited only by the imagination. I can't wait.
