Health and Usage Monitoring Solutions (HUMS)

Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) records the status of critical systems and components on aircrafts including the engine so that early detection of progressive defects is possible and thus rectification can be achieved before they have an immediate effect on operational safety.

The HUMS system uses sensors, distributed throughout the airframe and its components, linked to a central computer unit with a data recording and storage system.It collects usage parameters of events such as take-offs, landings, engine starts its operation and transmission health Monitoring trends which are particularly important it allows system specialists to determine whether the aircraft has developed faults that require rectification.
