IAI, Odysight.ai Unveil New Monitoring System for UH-60 Helicopters

IAI (Israel Aerospace Industries) and Odysight.ai unveiled a cutting-edge visual based health monitoring system for UH-60 helicopters.

The system is based on a multicamera system that enables real-time monitoring of the aircraft’s systems health, ensuring maximum safety and availability.

The UH-60 helicopter is a dominant player in the rotary wing aircrafts.

It is used for various missions, including search and rescue, medical evacuation, and transportation of passengers and equipment.

The new visual based health monitoring system provides a comprehensive view of the helicopter’s systems, detecting component degradation and early malfunction before they become critical.

The helicopter is equipped with Odysight.ai’s advanced visual sensing & video analytics technology, which include multiple highly resilient cameras, high performance processing unit, machine vision embedded software and AI\ML models and algorithms to support a variety of predictive maintenance and condition-based monitoring solutions.

The cameras will be strategically placed throughout the helicopter, capturing real time visual condition on various safety critical components. 

IAI is using its expertise in aerial vehicles for integration and certification of new capabilities, in order to incorporate this new technology into the UH60 helicopter, similarly to other improvements and systems that are integrated by IAI into this platform especially in the avionic field.

This project, led by IAI’s Aviation Group – Engineering and Development center, is part of IAI activity to develop and install cutting-edge health monitoring systems in aerial vehicles.

The activity is based on various modern sensor technologies and predictive analysis approaches for health monitoring, such as AI and Digital twin, and provide real-time prognostics of critical components.

This initiative is part of IAI’s ongoing commitment to advancing aerospace technology and ensuring the safety and reliability of its aircrafts.
