Abstract
Health monitoring and management of engine and engine components will provide savings of life cycle costs as parts are replaced on an as-needed basis.  TSI proposes and innovative  hardware and software system which utilizes advanced signal processing algorithms  coupled with high frequency vibration signatures captured from engine and engine  accessories.  The hardware sensor systems uses small profile, in-situ  transducers for high frequency vibration capture with a TSI high sampling  frequency data acquisition unit.  The TSI data acquisition unit is a small form factor  device capable of wireless data transmission.  Laboratory evaluations will  validate the integrated hardware/software system for health monitoring. BENEFIT: Integrated hardware/software system for engine and engine acccessory health  management systems for commercial OEM manufacturers
