Abstract : A diagnosis scheme for senors of a flight control system is presented. A duplex sensor of configurations. Based on analytic redundancy, provides the fail-operational capability of a conventional triplex sensor system. This is achieved by using deterministic observers. The feasibilty of the presented concept is demonstrated by flight test results.
