Landing Gear Strut Operational Readiness Monitoring
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
ABSTRACT: Dayton T Brown, Inc. (DTB), a leader in aircraft system engineering and testing services, is proposing to develop a comprehensive, robust, and accurate system for monitoring and assessing the operational readiness of landing gear systems via verification of proper serving (i.e. fluid level, gas pressure and temperature). DTB will team with General Atomics Systems Integration Division (GA-SI), experts in landing gear systems, to provide a solution that encompasses real world landing gear operational considerations, meets or exceeds reliability requirements and also benefits aircraft maintainers in that this system will become a deployed reality, once fully developed. BENEFIT: There are significant opportunities for widespread adoption of a robust, multifunction monitoring system that will accurately verify landing gear servicing requirements. Upon proof of concept at Phase I, the design could easily be adapted to different aircraft and helicopter platforms. For both military and commercial aircraft, this information would improve efficiency and safety as the aircraft maintainer would have an easy, non-intrusive way of determining the operational readiness of the landing gear. This is true of international markets as well.
