Abstract. For ensuring the structure integrity and safety of aircraft during flight, aircraft health monitoring requires real-time perception of aircraft structural state and service environment parameters, such as impact, damage, vibration, temperature, humidity and air pressure. At the same time, airborne monitoring environment also puts forward requirements for device including aspect of wireless communication and power consumption. In this paper, a wireless multi-parameter monitoring device is reported. This device has the function of monitoring random impact on aircraft structure through connected PZT sensor array adopting digital sequence method, and is able to reliably monitor vibration, temperature, humidity and air pressure by several digital sensors. In addition, the multi-parameter monitoring function verification experiment is performed, showing that the reported device obtains the signal from PZT and accurately locates the impact region, and some results of vibration, temperature, humidity and air pressure monitoring are given, thus proving its multi-parameter monitoring ability for aircraft structure.
