Dassault Studies Corrosion Sensing

 - January 1, 2013, 5:54 AM

Dassault is studying on-board sensors to anticipate corrosion better. Current corrosion-related inspections follow a one-size-fits-all program, and the programs tend to be quite restrictive. In future, sensors could inform technicians on the actual moisture and salinity the aircraft has been subjected to. “An aircraft sitting in the Arizona desert and one operating from Singapore see different corrosion risks,” Vautey pointed out.
