Landing Gear Monitoring Systems (LAGEMOSYS)
Safran Landing Systems partnered with the University of Sheffield and the University of Cambridge to conduct a research project into health and usage monitoring for aircraft landing gears.
The project had the following aims:
- To develop an operational loads monitoring system, obtaining data to support product optimisation and the development of a Health and Usage Monitoring System
- To understand the certification requirements and their impact on installing a health monitoring system on to a revenue aircraft
- To better understand the landing gear operational environment
The project looked to develop self-learning mathematical modelling techniques that can reliably predict a range of aircraft parameters on a landing gear using aircraft flight data with minimal additional sensors. The driver for this was to minimise the number of sensors needed to obtain the desired performance data, supporting the assessment of abnormal events and future health monitoring requirements.
