Development of Technologies to Monitor and Extend the Performance of Electrical Wire and Interconnect Systems (EWIS) of Aging Aircraft

The research will help on continuing to improve the safety and efficiency of aircraft in flight. This will be done by producing self-repairing aircraft wire, developing a RF detection method for locating damaged wires with exposed conductors, determining when changes in aircraft wire bundles from normal operation occur indicating some malfunction of the harness support system.
