International Conference on Health and Usage Monitoring (HUMS) 2023


The 13th Defence Science & Technology (DST) International Conference on Health and Usage Monitoring Systems will be held in Melbourne from 27-28 Feb 2023, in conjunction with the 20th Australian International Aerospace Congress (AIAC20), and the 2023 Australian International Air Show and Aerospace & Defence Exposition.

HUMS2023 Data Challenge now open

DSTG has prepared a Data Challenge for the upcoming conference HUMS2023. The data challenge is now open as of 14 Jun 2022.

The data is from DST Group’s Planet Gear Fault Propagation test completed in Jan 2022. This test was to simulate the later stage of a major helicopter gearbox failure.

During the test, a seeded EDM notch in the planet gear rim was successfully initiated into a real crack which was then propagated through the full width of the gear body.

A vibration dataset available to participants of HUMS2023 to detect, diagnose and trend the fault and its progression. The dataset contains 526 Matlab files of 4-channel hunting tooth averaged data. The hunting tooth average is designed such that both the planet gear synchronous average and planet carrier synchronous average can be derived from it.

The Data Challenge will award the team that makes the earliest convincing detection of the planet gear rim crack and the team that most accurately tracks the crack progression.

Registration and further information is available at
