Application of Condition Based Maintenance to Technical Support of Torpedo

To promote the application of condition based maintenance(CBM) to the technical support of torpedo weapons and other equipment, the basic idea of CBM is introduced. Taking a torpedo propulsion system for example, the fault features of the torpedo propulsion system is analyzed with respect to the problems in technical support of torpedo weapons, and the application feasibility of CBM to the propulsion system is discussed. Moreover, the analysis process of applying CBM to torpedo propulsion system is analyzed, and the preventive maintenance decision is made.
