Abstract
Radar returns of aircraft exhibit Jet Engine Modulation (JEM) lines, which are caused by the rotating parts in the turbine engines. The radar returns from the aircraft engines suggest that it may be possible to monitor the health of the engine, more specifically blade damage and possibility blade tip rub, buy using a radar as a sensor. This final report describes feasibility study performed to establish whether or not the collection and analysis of JEM radar data was technically, financilly and operationally feasible for the purpose of detecting and diagnosing turbine engine faults.
