enDAQ US Navy Physiological Events Mitigation Case Study

Using enDAQ Sensors to Perform Large-Scale Condition Monitoring for F-18 Readiness and Safety

US Navy

When physiological events (PEs) in naval aviators surged in 2017, the US Navy launched a multi-year investigation to determine the root cause. Using enDAQ sensors in their F/A-18s, the Navy was able to record and analyze vast amounts of pressure data to catch problems in F/A-18 Environmental Control Systems that caused PEs before they occurred, ensuring pilot safety and aircraft readiness. Every F/A-18 flight now records pressure with enDAQ sensors; over 2,000 sensors are in active circulation within the Navy for this purpose.

How The Slam Stick Vibration Data Logger Helped The US Navy to Quickly Isolate a Vibration Issue - Saving Time And Money

NAVAIR

The US Navy had a challenge: the crew of a C-2A Greyhound was reporting excessive vibration in the cockpit, yet no abnormal vibrations were being detected by the engine's vibration monitoring system. Usually, a system of traditional wired accelerometers would be used to further test vibration issues, but our sensors offered the US Navy an easy, wireless alternative that saved both time and money.
