Sensor Time Stamping for Mixed IEEE 1451 Network Protocols

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Darold Wobchall, President
Award Amount: $69,255.00
Abstract:
Many applications require that the precise time at which a sensor reading is taken be known. However, time correlation of data obtained from sensors which are distributed over a network or several networks are subject to errors or misinterpretation because different time stamp formats are used, the… More

Multi-channel Smart Strain Sensor System
