Aircraft to be given 'human-like skin'

3 posts in this topic

A system that allows the exterior of aircraft to "feel" damage or injury in a way similar to human skin is in development by BAE Systems.

The British defence contractor said the technology, which works by covering the entire body of a plane with tens of thousands of micro-sensors, is able to detect problems before they occur.

Sounds like a pretty smart and expensive concept.

One thing I question is the durability of these exotic coatings.
