One of the world’s largest aerospace companies is looking to revolutionize the industry with new technology developed by a small business in partnership with the Air Force and Navy.
UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp., recently signed an agreement to license the MD7-Pro digital structural health monitoring system from Boston, Massachusetts-based Metis Design Corp. This newer sensing technology offers ondemand structural health data collection and analysis for aircraft components and systems. When integrated with the UTC Aerospace Systems’ Pulse Health Monitor, the MD7-Pro will provide an accurate and timely assessment of aircraft component life expectancy, significantly reducing the maintenance hours spent conducting periodic manual inspections.
