7 6/19/027 AWIGG Founded in 1998 Founder –Richard Healing Director, Navy Safety & Survivability Membership Voluntary Government and Industry Initially ~ 40 members; today > 400 Todays meeting is the 12 th AWIGG held

8 6/19/028 AWIGG - Purpose Enhance aviation safety in both Government and Commercial aviation sectors by the sharing of factual information to: Accurately determine what wiring-related threats exist and the seriousness of such threats

9 6/19/029 AWIGG - Purpose Enhance aviation safety in both Government and Commercial aviation sectors by the sharing of factual information to: Accurately determine what wiring-related threats exist and the seriousness of such threats Identify options for dealing with existent wiring threats

10 6/19/0210 AWIGG - Purpose Enhance aviation safety in both Government and Commercial aviation sectors by the sharing of factual information to: Accurately determine what wiring-related threats exist and the seriousness of such threats Identify options for dealing with existent wiring threats Optimize resource expenditures for addressing these threats by minimizing duplicative research efforts among Government and Commercial entities

11 6/19/0211 AWIGG - Purpose Enhance aviation safety in both Government and Commercial aviation sectors by the sharing of factual information to: Accurately determine what wiring-related threats exist and the seriousness of such threats Identify options for dealing with existent wiring threats Optimize resource expenditures for addressing these threats by minimizing duplicative research efforts among Government and Commercial entities Reduce the misinformation associated with aircraft wiring issues

12 6/19/0212 Threats

13 6/19/0213 Threats

14 6/19/0214 Threat Mitigation Aircraft wiring Wire inspection Automated systems Laboratory analysis –Identify proximate failure modes –Predict wire life remaining Enhanced visual techniques –Optical –IR Damaged Wiring Systems Risk Assessment
