Abstract

In this article a high-fidelity aircraft benchmark, developed by Airbus for advanced flight control related studies, is presented in relation to its evolution towards advanced fault diagnosis within a European 7th Framework Program project entitled "Advanced Fault Diagnosis for Sustainable Flight Guidance and Control (ADDSAFE)". This European project was established to study and facilitate the transfer of model-based fault detection and diagnosis methods from Academia to Industry. The importance of the project arose on the one hand, due to the representativeness of the benchmark, and on the other hand, the industrial benchmarking and validation of the developed designs. The results presented in this article represent a quantitative measure of the success of the project since five of the developed designs were successfully validated in Airbus Verification and Validation (V&V) set-ups, and are currently undergoing further tests towards a possible real aircraft implementation.
