Ground, flight, and maintenance data was collected during the F-15F100 Engine Diagnostic System EDS Flight Evaluation and provided to the Air Force Aero-Propulsion Laboratory AFWALPOTC. This data was used by the Air Force, in a concurrent program, to verify a gas turbine engine fault detectionisolation and health trending algorithm employing gas path analysis. In addition, the EDS Flight Evaluation served as a demonstration vehicle for a prototype Maintenance Information Management System MIMS. Independent assessments of the gas path analysis algorithm and of the prototype MIMS were performed and the results are presented. Several lessons learned about the automatic recording of in-flight trending data for high performance gas turbine engines in modern tactical aircraft are also presented. Author
