Research Institution
Frontier Technology, Inc. (FTI) will demonstrate the feasibility of developing prognostic models that can predict current health state, future failure and remaining useful life (RUL) for electronic systems with focus on aircraft communication, navigation and identification systems (CNI) and their components. FTI will combine principles of real-time prognostic health management that analyze system health states with Reliability Centered Maintenance that estimate RUL and recommend appropriate corrective action. FTI’s research adapts successful system-level prognostic and RCM technologies to installed electronics systems using data-derived statistical models that function with existing data sources and are easily extended to varying system configurations. The research will: * Maximize use of existing sensors, parameters and data sources from installed systems. * Create models of healthy systems using variances from optimum system conditions to detect incipient faults. * Identify the fault to failure progression and estimate component or system RUL. * Notify system users of fault detection, RUL and suggested action/areas of investigation This Phase I effort extends FTI’s research into prognostic assessment of system health. Phase II will demonstrate prototypes of the models developed during Phase I and will identify limitations and areas requiring investigation in applying the technology to specific electronic system configurations.
