Distributed sensor networks are becoming a critical technical driver in the application of structural health monitoring for large-scale structures such as commercial aircrafts since it greatly increases the reliability and robustness of monitoring systems. One of the key technical issues in the implementation of distributed sensor network is the application of an information fusion that enables integration of data from all sensors for the assessment of structural conditions. In this paper, we demonstrate the feasibility of combining a distributed sensor network and a two-level information fusion technique to damage detection in composite structures.
