The RCAF operates a fleet of 27 Sikorsky CH-124 Sea King anti-submarine warfare helicopters which are variants of the Sikorsky S-61 aircraft. For the past fifteen years Gastops has been the exclusive Integrated Health Monitoring (IHM) contractor for the platform. The IHM program for the Sea King fleet provides a cradle to grave health management of the engine and drive train components including vibration monitoring, precision shaft alignment and installation, rotor balance and diagnostics. The IHM program also includes onboard and test cell fitted MetalSCAN oil debris monitoring capability supporting the Sea King operations.
Gastops manages all the in-service data collection and analysis activities using our in-house developed health management software. This integrated database supports the engineering effort to systematically develop, demonstrate and qualify new condition monitoring procedures.
Since its inception, the IHM program has made a significant positive impact on the availability of Sea King fleet and its operating costs, reducing both scheduled and unscheduled downtime.
