Instant, comprehensive reporting of aircraft health, from nose to rudder

Why monitor fixed-wing health?

By monitoring aircraft component health, operators and manufacturers are able to more accurately detect defects, premature wear, and other issues that result in increased maintenance costs and unexpected downtime. Monitoring conditions such as vibration, strain, and noise can also result in safer operation, as well as a more pleasant experience for crew and passengers.
