Award Amount: $69,867.00
 

Abstract:

The objective of the proposed Exploratory Development effort is to prove feasibility of advanced concepts for a lightweight tool for regularly inspecting the guy wires that support tall antenna towers, and to develop a design of such a tool. The tool will have one simple haul-up line and no power or data transmission lines. In particular, the tool will be lightweight, self-powered and self-recording and work reliably in the field. It will smoothly track guys of up to 3.5 inches in diameter with varying amounts of swelling in a manner that ensures high quality inspection data. The performance of the tool will not be affected by severe EMI/RFI conditions.
