Smart Interconnecting Clamp
Smart clamp network that is designed to reduce weight, improve safety, and map the electrical system of an aircraft.
The aviation industry has focused on modernizing their fleets both in the military and commercial sectors. Aging aircraft wiring is still a predominant problem for aviation. Aircraft operating at speeds with vibrating aerodynamic forces in high temperature environments require visual inspections to verify chafing of electrical wiring or contact with fuel lines, hydraulic lines and oxygen lines. The performance of electrical systems would be greatly enhanced by the availability of real-time on-board sensor data embedded in the smart clamp. The smart clamp provides data on amperage leaks, electromagnetic interference, radiation, harmonic threats, temperature, humidity, pressure, etc. and correlate the information gathered in them to help the sensor network algorithms pre-diagnose and build databases for predictive maintenance. In addition to this and independently from the Paris Agreement, all major airlines voluntarily committed to mitigate climate change. After 2027, the climate change program known as Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) will become mandatory. According to Forbes, emission levels in 2020 are expected to triple by 2050. Nevertheless, a 2020 cap may prove insufficient when the goal is to limit climate change and global temperature rise below 2°C. The world needs to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. If implemented with integrity, UAT could prevent up to 1,500 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per aircraft in one year. That is 200 times what U.S. households emit each year.
