There is a need to increase engine time on wing of aircraft engines to eliminate $1.1 billion in in operational and sustainment costs across 2,823 Air Force aircraft, while increasing availability of aircraft to assist the USAF in its mission to fly, fight, and win. Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc. in collaboration with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University proposes to assist the USAF Arnold Engineering Development Complex in carrying out its mission in conduct developmental test and evaluation for the nation through simulation, model, ground and flight test, from providing a propulsion health monitoring systems that features passive Radio Frequency sensors embedded for increased hot section component durability as a measurement tool to reduce life cycle costs and repair of propulsion systems. As part of this Phase I STTR, Sensatek with Embry-Riddle will identify customers and end-users within the USAF propulsion systems directorate, Arnold Engineering Development Complex, and life cycle management and sustainment operations for this advanced instrumentation system. We would tailor the Minimum Viable Prototype and create a test-plan to demonstrate its capabilities as required by the identified stakeholders. The final deliverables for this project would be a report and a 100 second video of the Phase I findings.
