Abstract
To address the Armys need for health monitoring of rotorcraft generator control units (GCUs) and main power relays, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a Self-contained Wireless Electrical Health Monitoring (SWEM) system based on a new design fusing POCs proprietary and state-of-the-art technologies. The innovation in use of ultralow-power wireless sensors, efficient power harvesting, and accurate diagnostic and prognostic algorithms, will enable the system to nonintrusively detect all failure modes of the GCU and main power relays in Army rotorcraft (e.g., AH-64A/D, CH-47, and OH-58) at 90% probability of detection with 95% confidence, as well as predict the remaining useful life with
