Abstract [en]

When flying a fighter aircraft such as the JAS 39 Gripen, the pilot is exposed to high g-loads. In order to prevent the draining of blood from the brain during this stress an anti-g protection system is used. The system consists of a pair of trousers, called the anti-g trousers, with inflatable bladders. The bladders are filled with air, pressing tightly on to the legs in order to prevent the blood from leaving the upper part of the body.

The purpose of this thesis is to detect if the pressure of the anti-g trousers is deviating from the desired value. This is done by developing a detection algorithm which gives two kinds of alarm. One is given during minor deviations using a CUSUM test, and one is given at grave deviations, based on different conditions including residual, derivative and time. The thresholds, in which between the pressure should lie in a faultless system, are calculated from the g-load value. The thresholds are based upon given static guidelines for the pressure tolerance area and are modified in order to adapt to the estimated dynamics of the system.

The values of the input signals, pressure and g-load, were taken from real flight sessions. The validation has been performed using both faultless and faulty flight sequences, with low false alarm rate and no missed detections. All together the detection system is considered to work well.
