This paper presents a neural-network-based approach for the problem of sensor failure detection, identification, and accommodation for a flight control system without physical redundancy in the sensors. The approach is based on the introduction of on-line learning neural network estimators. For a system with n sensors, a combination of a main neural network and a set of n decentralized neural networks achieves the design goal. The main neural network and the ith decentralized neural network detect and identify a failure of the ith sensor, whereas the output of the ith decentralized neural network accommodates for the failure by replacing the signal from the failed ith sensor with its estimate. The on-line learning for these neural network architectures is performed using the extended back-propagation algorithm. The document describes successful simulations of the sensor failure detection, identification, and accommodation process following both soft and hard sensor failures. The simulations have shown remarkable capabilities for this neural scheme.
