Flexible health and usage management systems (HUMS) are increasing helicopter readiness and safety while saving precious maintenance resources for commercial and military aircraft.
HUMS automatically monitors hundreds of aircraft signals through a network of advanced sensors and onboard computers. HUMS synthesizes and analyzes the flight data from the engine, rotor and drive train, and tracks the usage and health of an aircraft and its major assemblies. Current and historical flight data is integrated into a comprehensive database with full reporting capabilities to facilitate day-to-day maintenance, logistics and planning for single vehicles or entire fleets.
HUMS has been proven to help boost aircraft readiness, enhance flight safety and lower maintenance and operating costs.
