Abstract
The identification and development of sensors for monitoring environmental conditions, for detecting incipient faults, and for detecting precursor-to-failure trigger points is one aspect of Prognostic Health Management (PHM) for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). Another important aspect is to collect the set of sensor output data and to analyze that set of data using realistic and verifiable prognostic models to arrive at a reliability prediction that can be accurately related to the Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of a part, component, sub-assembly or assembly, such as those found on a Joint Strike Fighter. The objectives of this SBIR are to define techniques and processes to relate RUL predictions to detectable fault conditions; determine the feasibility of developing advanced models and statistical techniques; develop a prototype model/programs for a specific JSF subsystem application and its electronic boards; develop an initial list of required available inputs to the models; outline a method of extracting inputs from a particular subsystem and board; and define user interfaces.
