Introduction
Substantial improvements are needed to aircraft and engine health
monitoring and management technologies, services and processes.
Working towards a global maintenance system by
integrating interoperable aircraft and ground segments ………
will ensure continuous aircraft availability by
minimising operational disruptions
and the associated costs, while increasing the level of safety.

• Data is the source of information that can report
the condition of:
– Aircraft avionics
SES_AC_Health_Mgt_Dec07
This can be achieved by interfacing to an
existing aircraft avionics bus or by
direct connection to avionic units

Data acquisition recording on aircraft has
a long pedigree, but a new generation of
equipment is needed to achieve the
integrity and direct compatibility with
prognosis and maintenance planning
systems
– Data must be acquired and stored on the aircraft

Case Study – RR300 EMU
Rolls-Royce identified a new market for an engine derived
from their successful Model 250
Turbines for lower Shaft Horse Power applications
in particular small civil helicopters
A business model was evolved
which at its core aimed for
2000 hours maintenance intervals
Key attributes would include
lower acquisition and operating costs
and embedded engine monitoring

Case Study – RR300 EMU
Rolls-Royce named the new engine RR300 and partnered
with a launch customer – Robinson Helicopters
The engine development programme, focussed in Indianapolis,
was on an aggressive schedule
An optimised Engine Monitoring Unit
would provide the quantity and quality
of data to realise the business model
All parts and sub-assemblies had to be
high performance, very reliable
and commercially competitive

Case Study – RR300 EMU
Rolls-Royce selected SES to develop an Engine Monitoring
Unit, based on existing and proven technology
The RR300 EMU is derived from the COTS S3DR-C
Solid State Data Recorder
The EMU interfaces to sensors fitted
on the engine, to be conditioned and
processed to extract key parameters
Data is time-stamped and recorded
including variable sample rate signals
and certain calculated exceedances

Case Study – RR300 EMU
Rolls-Royce required the Engine Monitoring Unit to record
for 2000 hours yet have quick access to visualised data
The RR300 EMU is able to rapidly down-load data in a pre-formatted
form for visualisation and analysis of recorded information
A dedicated software tool based on the
COTS REVEAL product provides data
management and processing facilities
Access to engine data gives accurate
information about the engine condition
actual use profile and historical trends
