Description: The analysis of the possibility of using thermoindicating paints to assess the technical condition of electric connectors on the aircraft technology of the Air Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The main directions of the use of thermo-indicating paints on electrical connectors are determined. The tasks set are based on the need for an analysis of the need for thermal indications. An electrical connector, is an electro-mechanical device used to join electrical terminations and create an electrical circuit. The connection may be temporary, as for portable equipment, require a tool for assembly and removal, or serve as a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices. An adapter can be used to effectively bring together dissimilar connectors. The aircraft uses a wide range of electrical connectors, for example: 2RT, 2RMD, RS and others. The problem of measuring the temperature on the electrical connectors is one of the most urgent, because often they refuse precisely because of the problems of temperature fluctuations. In accordance with the current conditions of combat employment of aviation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it will allow accelerating the preparation of aircraft equipment and take appropriate measures to improve the survivability of aircraft in modern conditions.
