Abstract
THIS PHASE I PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN ON-BOARD EXPERT SYSTEM FOR VIBRATION MONITORING AND CONDITION ASSESSMENT OF HELICOPTER PROPULSION SYSTEMS; COMPUTERIZED DATA ACQUISITION AND ANALYSIS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED WITH EQUIPMENT AND SOFTWARE CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT FOR COMMERCIAL ROTARY WING AIRCRAFT. IN-FLIGHT VIBRATION MONITORING UTILIZING A PORTABLE COMPUTER WILL FOCUS ON A CRITICAL PROPULSION COMPONENT IN ORDER TO DEMONSTRATE AUTONOMOUS MAINTENANCE DATA TRENDING AND DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES. A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR THE PHASE II IMPLEMENTATION OF AN EXPERT SYSTEM OPERATING IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE EXISTING ON-BOARD COMPUTER AND DATA BUS STRUCTURE.
