Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA8650-06-C-2619
Award Amount: $748,976.00
 

Abstract:

This SBIR program will develop a novel software methodology for the management of gas turbine usage data in real time for accurate prediction of engine life. The approach will be flexible enough to allow for re-assessment of life consumption when subsequent knowledge provides a revised understanding of the way the damage is accrued. Phase II will further investigate potential data compression methods as well as their overall effect in assessing turbine engine health. A key Phase II task will be to identify an approach for signal processing or data compression without any negative effects on life prediction. Although data compression experts can be found throughout industry, the VEXTEC Team are renowned turbine engine lifing and fatigue experts. The Phase II effort will further develop these techniques and demonstrate how data flows from the raw signal to a processed and compressed format.
