Abstract : The structural monitoring systems produced by ALENIA for Italian Air Force are briefly presented and discussed. From the previous experience a new proposal for AMX aircraft monitoring arised and is showed in the present paper. The proposed system is based mainly on in flight recording of strain gauges measurements with, in addition, storage of some flight parameters for special investigations or semplified back-up analysis in case of failures of the main system. Elaboration methods to be used both on board and on ground are described. Measurements on static and fatigue tests on ground were studied for a correct tuning of the system.
