- Architecture & Design
The FP7 SafeWire project proposes to develop a new generation of novel Non-Destructive Testing sensors and systems that can inspect aging aircraft wiring for faults in wiring and insulation without the need to dismantle the aircraft structures.
The proposed techniques are:
- Enhanced time-domain reflectometry to detect impedance changes in the wiring system without disassembly of the harness and wires;
- Wideband ultrasonic guided wave technology (using piezo composites and electromagnetic sensors) to inspect ageing wires to detect insulation damages combining advanced signal processing and pattern recognition technique;
- Pulsed thermography system to detect temperature changes to detect cracks, chafe, cuts, burns, delamination, embrittlement in bundle of wires.
The SafeWire project is co-funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme managed by REA-Research Executive Agency and submitted under FP7-SME - Specific Programme "Capacities": Research for the benefit of SMEs, on-topic SME-2012-1 - Research for SMEs, with the project ID: 313357.
In this program are involved 5 countries from Europe: Greece, Poland, Romania represented by our company - ASSIST Software, Turkey and the UK.
