A Dynamic Diagnostic and Prognostic System for the Joint Strike Fighter
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is the Department of Defense's next generation strike aircraft, featuring advanced airframe, logistics, avionics, propulsion, stealth, and firepower systems. With a focus on cost reduction, the JSF Program is being developed with integrated Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) and condition-based maintenance (CBM) technologies. The inclusion of such systems will allow continuous evaluation of aircraft component health to improve safety and minimize upkeep expense through maintenance performed according to a condition-based schedule. Barron Associates, Inc. (BAI) has teamed with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, a prime JSF contractor, to propose the development of a diagnostic and prognostic system for JSF subsystems that operate in dynamic environments and under widely varying operating conditions. The proposed work brings together algorithms developed by BAI for online, real-time model parameter identification, fault detection and isolation (FDI), and prognostic functions to accomplish the goals set in this topic.
