Abstract:

Impact Technologies, in cooperation with The Boeing Company and IMR Test Labs, proposes to develop a low power, lightweight, miniature sensing device capable of sensing parameters which contribute to corrosion development in aircraft structures and components. By monitoring the primary drivers of corrosion as opposed to only its formation and effects, maintainers will be able to more proactively address corrosion within a more prognostic condition-based maintenance framework. The Phase I program objective is to demonstrate a prototype Corrosion Sensing Module (CorrSeM) for monitoring environmental factors contributing to corrosion development. Impact will leverage its experience in developing in-situ embedded sensing solutions to architect, design, and build a prototype system for laboratory data collection and demonstration of Phase I feasibility. The ability of the prototype to track corrosion drivers will be verified through controlled ISO and ASTM test methods. At the end of Phase I, Impact will create a development plan leading towards inexpensive, lightweight, miniature solutions which meet or exceed performance expectations. Successful completion of Phase I objectives will allow for smooth transition into a Phase II program focused on rigorous testing of the CorrSeM's capabilities under both laboratory and real-world scenarios and the development of miniature CorrSeM prototypes.
