Whenever the aircraft is powered, the ACES system continuously records and monitors a number of important environmental quality parameters.ACES units are installed in numerous locations to guarantee adequate monitoring of all aeroplane regions and to track zone variation.
Ozone and cabin air pressure are the environmental indicators with the highest priority, followed by carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide with a moderate priority, relative humidity, airborne particles, and organic pollutants, such as pesticides and engine oil by products.
Ozone, cabin pressure, CO, CO2, and relative humidity are the characteristics that can be frequently monitored using sensor technology that is available off-the-shelf.These made up the list of environmental factors for in-flight sensing that were given priority.
Definition of sensor and sensor system requirements Investigators from LBNL came to the conclusion that sensors meant to give data for routine usage by stakeholders must prioritise simplicity, ruggedness.
The amount of gaseous, particle, and biological pollutants in the air determines the quality of the cabin air. In addition, other elements like temperature, humidity, or even aircraft movement might affect how we perceive the quality of the air.
The Global Aircraft cabin air quality sensor Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Wirelessly linked to a secure cloud service interface, the laboratory-grade ACES sensor technology continuously scans the cabin and flight deck for potentially dangerous substances. The ACES mobile app and secure web access to the ACES Cloud Service Portal both provide real-time access to the air quality data gathered during a flight on any mobile device.
The service also offers programmable dashboards, tailored warnings, and reports that let the operator verify the quality of the air in the aircraft, spot new problems, and record maintenance activities.
Unexpected incidents of smoke, odour, or fumes can cause flights to be cancelled, incur high maintenance expenses, and pose a health concern to both passengers and crew.
There is currently no automatic equipment placed on board the majority of aeroplanes, according to George Bobb, VP of Teledyne Technologies, despite the fact that air quality monitoring solutions are available for homes, businesses, and industrial sectors. “Having ACES certified for the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 families of aircraft is a huge advancement.
With a ready-to-deploy system, it enables airline executives, engineering, and maintenance teams to monitor cabin air quality on the majority of aircraft now in operation.
