Abstract : The report represents the first formally documented submittal prepared as part of the concept formulation study for Automatic Inspection, Diagnostic and Prognostic Systems (AIDAPS) for Army aircraft. The principal objective of this phase A effort is to establish that only basic engineering, rather than experimental effort, is required to proceed with engineering development of AIDAP systems. Confirmation of this fact is presented by in-depth discussions of the availability of applicable AIDAPS technology thereby demonstrating categorically the feasibility of proceeding with development and deployment of AIDAP systems without further research effort. In the process of accomplishing this objective, several subsidiary tasks were performed that provide a base of information from which phases B and C can proceed. (Author)
