During Exercise Talisman Sabre 2019, the Australian Defence Force (ADF) in conjunction with Defence Science & Technology (DST) and the Defence Aviation Safety Authority (DASA) successfully validated ChipCHECK®, a state of the art instrument that provides equipment maintenance crews with immediate, automated chip analyses onsite (either at base or deployed). ChipCHECK®, designed and manufactured by Gastops, provides a capability not previously available to the ADF – the ability for operators and maintenance staff to accurately assess the health of an aircraft’s propulsion system via wear debris analysis while the aircraft is operating.

Exercise Talisman Sabre is a biennial combined Australian and United States training activity that in 2019 involved more than 34,000 personnel from 18 countries, including Australia, the United States, Canada, Japan, and New Zealand. Designed to practise the respective military services and associated agencies in planning and conducting Combined and Joint Task Force operations, Exercise Talisman Sabre improves combat readiness and interoperability between Australian and US Forces, and is a platform to improve upon capabilities by introducing state of the art technologies such as ChipCHECK®.
