Paper Abstract

Today's commercial and military aircraft require significant manpower resources to provide operational readiness and safety of flight. Aging aircraft fleets are much in need of new and innovative health-monitoring methods to prevent catastrophic failure and reduce life-cycle costs. The key items to be addressed are describing in situ structural integrity characteristics of corrosion and barely visible impact damage (BVID) to determine the 'damage susceptibility.' This paper presents a new concept for performing onboard real-time monitoring using conductive polymer sensor array technology.
