Abstract
"An effort focused on application of condition-monitoring techniques to aircraft and ground-support equipment is proposed. Building upon the proof-of-concept demonstrated in Phase I, the Phase II effort will involve: (1) construction of a test apparatusfor determining the serviceable condition of the tail-servo actuators of the Predator UAV, (2) collaboration with SPO personnel and contractors to clearly define the most critical applications of motor-based condition monitoring, (3) development ofcost-effective, rugged, portable test equipment for field- and depot-level evaluation of selected aircraft subsystems, (4) deployment of motor-based condition-monitoring systems to selected locations and evaluation of operational results, and (5)summarization of field results and evaluation of future applications of the technology to continuous in-flight prognostics."
