Abstract

The Intelligent Sensor Node (ISN) Phase I program successfully demonstrated the feasibility of implementing a high temperature capable, reconfigurable node that can interface with most types of control sensors found in today s propulsion control systems. The proposed Phase II program is aimed at transitioning this design into a fully thermally compliant, miniaturized node that has been validated through thermal and environmental testing in the laboratory and performance testing on a ground based on-engine testing program in conjunction with a FADEC system. The on-engine testing will also verify the reconfiguration and fault detection capability of the ISN module through insertion of faults and BIT tests.
