Aircraft Health Monitoring

Modern aircraft have enormous amounts of data flowing within them making it a challenge to access these large volumes of data, and separate useful data from that which is not relevant to the issue. In older aircraft, most data is either unavailable or cannot be accessed by on-board maintenance diagnostic devices.

Eliminate in-service failures via a system that enables detection and removal of components just prior to failure.

There is a wealth of data generated on an aircraft while in service, and the effective use of that data will provide the ability to perform proactive maintenance. Effective data capture must:

  • Capture the right data—isolate data relevant to the maintenance issue. 
  • Use the data effectively—analyze that data efficiently and with accurately, to detect impending maintenance issues.
AHMS System Results

Real Time Monitoring: The operational status of the entire fleet of aircraft is known at all times, with instant updates when conditions change. Graphical displays provide location and health status for each aircraft.

Diagnostics: The troubleshooting and analysis ecosystem allows Maintenance Control to interpret current messages, explore current and historical data, and then send action messages and launch troubleshooting guidance to resolve technical issues as soon as possible.

Prognostics: Impending issues which have not yet affected the serviceability of the aircraft are identified, and maintenance recommendations are quickly provided to pre-empt functional failures.

Engine Trending /Airframe Exceedances: Connected Aircraft, Operational Efficiency, AHMS

Consists of three different but related functions: automated engine trend reporting, real-time engine and airframe exceedance monitoring, and remote real-time diagnostics.
