Spread spectrum time domain reflectometry (SSTDR) and sequence time domain reflectometry have been demonstrated to be effective technologies for locating intermittent faults on aircraft wires carrying typical signals in flight. This paper examines the parameters that control the accuracy, latency, and signal to noise ratio for these methods. Both test methods are shown to be effective for wires carrying ACpower signals, and SSTDR is shown to be particularly effective at testing wires carrying… 

Mixed-signal reflectometer for location of faults on aging wiring

Location of faults on aging cables is of great interest to maintainers of aircraft, cars, power distribution systems, communication systems, etc. One class of methods for locating faults is frequency

Fault Detection of Aircraft Cable via Spread Spectrum Time Domain Reflectometry

As the airplane cable fault detection based on TDR (time domain reflectometry) is affected easily by various noise signals, which makes the reflected signal attenuate and distort heavily, failing to
