METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR A DISTRIBUTED AIRCRAFT ACTUATION SYSTEM

Methods, apparatus, and articles of manufacture for a distributed aircraft actuation system are disclosed. An example apparatus includes a collection engine to obtain first monitoring information corresponding to a first set of control surfaces of an aircraft, the first set including a first control surface on a first side of the aircraft and a second control surface on a second side of the aircraft, the second side opposite the first, and obtain second monitoring information corresponding to a second set of control surfaces of the aircraft, the second set including a third control surface on the first side and a fourth control surface on the second side. The example apparatus further includes a non-responsive component detector to determine if one of the control surfaces is non-responsive based on the first and the second monitoring information, and a command generator to deactivate the first set when the non-responsive component detector determines that the first control surface is non-responsive while the second set remains active.
