Domestic liner MS-21 will receive a monitoring system for the state of the wing

The domestic liner MS-21 will receive a system for monitoring the state of structures. Nikolay Lvov, General Director of the company-developer of the system NIC “IRT”, announced this.

According to him, the state of the composite wing on the MS-21 will be monitored in real time. “We have signed a roadmap and a plan, now the terms of reference for the implementation of the system on MS-21 are being developed“, – said the head of the company.

The monitoring system is a set of miniature sensors of various physical nature (sensors of acoustic emission, deformation, temperature, corrosion, etc.), which are installed in the structure of aircraft and carry out a comprehensive measurement of various parameters of their condition. The received information is processed using a specially created software package and displayed in an accessible form on the laptop of an aviation technician. The system detects the beginning of the appearance of defects in the structure, their development, the appearance of cracks and informs about a possible violation of the integrity of structures.

MS-21 is a medium-haul civil aircraft under development with a capacity of 163 to 211 passengers. At the end of 2021, the aircraft received a basic type certificate, in December it made its first flight with a Russian composite wing.

It was expected that at the first stage the aircraft would be delivered to customers with PW1400 engines, later they would have a choice between PW and Russian PD-14. But in the current situation, there is no longer any alternative to the PD-14. MS-21 with a domestic engine is now being tested, he has already made more than 100 successful flights.
