The condition-based maintenance (CBM) strategy utilizing continuous monitoring with proposed Combined Sensor Network (CSN) technology is discussed in this paper. The paper introduces a decision-making approach for design of optimal integrated monitoring and diagnostic architecture that combines maintenance decisions with CSN-based diagnostic system and its integration with Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) approaches for achieving efficient system for maintenance and lowering life-cycle cost of industrial structures. The technology prototype is tested in laboratory and real-life conditions on a 20 m tall airport radar tower in Riga, Latvia.
