A structure health monitoring ("SHM") system according to the invention can be deployed in an onboard environment, such as an aircraft, to provide an ongoing damage assessment of structural components on the aircraft. The SHM system reduces or eliminates time consuming and costly manual inspections of aircraft. The SHM system can leverage known sensor technologies to collect sensor data indicative of the structural health of the monitored components. The sensor data is processed and baselined with sensor feature baselines and damage estimate baselines t...
What is claimed is: 1. A structure health monitoring system for an apparatus, said structure health monitoring system comprising: at least one sensor configured to provide sensor data indicative of the structural integrity of a component of said apparatus; first processing logic for processing said sensor data to obtain an initial damage estimate for said component; a baseline update element configured to store and update a damage estimate baseline for said component; and second processing logic for generating an intermediate damage estimate for said co...
