Abstract


Delta Air Lines has partnered with Sandia National Labs, FAA, Boeing, Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Corp. (AEM), and Structural Measurement Systems (SMS) on a novel SHM program using Comparative Vacuum Monitoring (CVM) sensors. The goal is to produce regulatory guidance that will enable widespread adoption of SHM across the commercial aviation industry. This “blueprint” is required since current regulations do not define SHM, nor validation and certification of SHM required for implementation.
