Abstract
In this project we propose to make a unique and complete data mining system, specifically developed for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). Even more particular about the system is the way it is aimed at vehicles and other structures that form fleets as they are procured in the Army. In the project the integrity of the data is weighted to be as important as the algorithms that mine the data. As such the complete system will be developed and `off the shelf' analysis techniques avialble in many commercial database software will be employed. From the onset this project aims to ensure that the envisaged system addresses the real practical issues of a complete system. All aspects of detail such as format, data types and stamping are addressed. The project proposes to use a well-developed system of sensors, nodes, local and global databanks to provide the data for the analysis/mining. Data form the sensors will be analyzed on the nodes and all redundant data immediately removed. This aims to reduce bandwidth. Additionally, the nodes will be enabled to provide early warning of system failures such as leak or impact detection. This will provide on the ground staff with immediate and practical information.
