Sensors and Sensibility Keep Today’s Jet Planes Working Hard

Jet engines in passenger and freight planes may seem the antithesis of the digital economy. Complex and costly, they are powered by old-fashioned polluting fuels: high-octane hydrocarbons. But aero-engine makers’ emphasis on improving safety and reliability has led them to become the pioneers in the internet of things (IoT). They have connected industrial systems to

Army Uses Networked Acoustic Sensors to Detect Aircraft Damage Real-Time

For the first time ever, a team of researchers successfully developed and tested networked acoustic emission sensors that can detect airframe damage on conceptual composite UH-60 Black Hawk rotorcraft. Researchers with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and the U.S Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center said their discovery opens up possibilities for

A Data Tool Could Automate Maintenance of Army’s Most Critical Assets

The Army says it is making headway with an innovative data-processing technique meant to automate maintenance and support of vehicle inventories and weapons systems. The parametric data reduction tool, PaDRT, is a product of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development And Engineering Center (CERDEC) and Penn State University’s Applied Research Laboratory. After four years in
