  • A consortium of eight European organizations recently completed the ADDSAFE Project (Advanced Fault Diagnosis for Sustainable Flight Guidance and Control) funded under the European Union׳s Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7). The ADDSAFE Project consortium (DEIMOS – coordinator, AIRBUS, SZTAKI Budapest, Leicester University, Bordeaux University, Hull University, Delft Technical University, DLR Oberpfaffenhofen) involved industrial and academic teams with recognized research expertise in the field of fault diagnosis. In this project, the main industrial partner AIRBUS, defined several challenging fault detection and diagnosis (FDD) problems for real-time on-board monitoring of flight control system actuator and sensor faults. The aim of this benchmark was to encourage the application of advanced fault diagnosis techniques for AIRBUS aircraft that could significantly improve the aircraft performance (e.g., weight saving by optimizing the aircraft structural design) or decrease its environmental footprint (e.g., reduced fuel consumption and noise).
