Mechanical System Metrics with Embedded Transducers
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
In the proposed work, Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) will determine the feasibility of developing non-intrusive, low-cost, embeddable pressure transducers that can be used to provide mechanical system data on valves used in salt water and hydraulic fluid piping systems. Specifically, in Phase I, IOS will demonstrate the potential for fabricating microTech fiber optic pressure transducers that will operate reliably (less than 1% variation) over the required strain range (up to 6000 psi). In Phase I, a communication protocol will be selected and a first design for a multichannel pressure detection system will be established.
