Abstract

Aircraft Maintenance Organizations are facing the needs for a significant technology innovation phase due to emerging novel standards and security needs. These are fostered by political and environmental situation characterized by strong commitments for security and “green aircraft” operations. Novel sensing technologies are at the core of this revolution being primary player both in the novel aircraft concept development and for the development of the associated novel maintenance standards. Authors are involved in these efforts by teaming up for the proposition of research initiative that will lead to the development of innovative operative supports and knowledge in the field of aircraft maintenance. In this contribution, key technologies and their state of the art are briefly identified together with their possible application. The technology oriented initiatives proposed by the authors companies are also introduced.
