Research Institution
Impact Technologies in cooperation with Sytronics propose the development of an advanced engine test cell troubleshooting and diagnostic system that is capable of statistical anomaly detection of engine sensor signals, mechanical and performance-baseddiagnostics, and vibration image fault detection/isolation. The advanced test cell diagnostic system will perform both real-time and post-test diagnostic assessments of engine performance and mechanical faults so that engine anomalies can be identifiedpromptly and associated maintenance prioritized. This proposal has been submitted after discussions with the engine repair organizations at the Air Logistic Centers who have consistently cited improved test cell diagnostics as a key improvement to theirmission. The advanced diagnostic hardware and software to be developed under this program will be directly coupled with an existing test cell hardware upgrade program (JETS-Jet Engine Test Strategy) managed at WR-ALC/LE for the USAF. In addition, thedeveloped system will initially be installed and tested in an F404 test cell at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station.
