Sensor Technology & IVHM in Fighter Aircraft

Authors(1) :-Lakshman Singh

Fighter Aircraft being of national importance so is fast readiness at air-bases, maintenance & repair activity play very important role. In this paper we had discussed different technology of sensors for authenticated & secured data communicated from different location of fighter aircraft for speedy maintenance with Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM)1 methodology. Paper brief the need of different sensors & their properties for IVHM. With the brief discussion in tabulated form for different sensor technologies2 used in IVHM, paper goes to detail analysis of Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW)3 sensors and explored its wide range applications in Aircraft technology.
