In order to optimize the use of fault tolerant controllers for unmanned or autonomous aerial vehicles, a health diagnostics system is being developed. To autonomously determine the effect of damage on global vehicle health, a feature-based neural-symbolic network is utilized to infer vehicle health using historical data. Our current system is able to accurately characterize the extent of vehicle damage with 99.2% accuracy when tested on prior incident data. Based on the results of this work, neural-symbolic networks appear to be a useful tool for diagnosis of global vehicle health based on features of subsystem diagnostic information.
