Innovations in sensing technology facilitate the measurement of aircraft structural integrity in real-time. Multifunctional sensors can be used to assess a number of variables, including fatigue, structural strain and damage, wind speed, temperature, moisture levels, corrosion, and aerodynamic pressure.
Structural health monitoring can enhance an aircraft’s lifetime and reduce the duration of routine inspection and maintenance work, by providing continuous feedback and automatic detection of damage in the aircraft’s components. The technology has the potential to significantly reduce human involvement in these regular inspections, leading to a safer and more economical aircraft maintenance operation.
CPI has expertise in the latest printed sensing technologies and helps companies to develop and demonstrate lightweight, low cost sensing devices which can be located on surfaces, or embedded within structural components. CPI can design corresponding data handling and intelligent control and management processes to a company’s specific needs, to facilitate improved monitoring processes.
