IDI Technology - Engine Diagnostics
IDI is currently developing a range of technologies applicable to current
and future aircraft for integration into engines. On board sensors provide
information to operators and associated support organizations which will
enable the practice of condition-based maintenance and consequent reduction
in life cycle costs. The information is related to the condition of the
engine components, lubrication, and fuel systems. In addition IDI has
developed technology for in-situ monitoring of engine mounts and related
structures. IDI technologies are all at different stages of development.
While some exist in the concept stage, others have been developed to full
working prototypes. IDI seeks interested parties to develop
related product areas by providing engineering services, licensing
rights, or in some cases outright sale or technology transfer. The following
abstracts describe a summary of currently available IDI technologies for
engine diagnostics and general Health Usage Maintenance Systems (HUMS) applications.
