Abstract:

ASTI proposes to identify and evaluate the most promising new oil condition measurement techniques and develop sensor device concepts that can be used in point of use on-board and/or hand-held oil condition analyzers. ASTI now believes the best options for new oil condition sensors are mid-infrared optical methods and chemically selective binding agents on micro-electromechanical detectors. Technical objectives include: * Assess and analyze the gap between the capabilities of current state of the art sensor devices and the expectations of the US Army * Identify novel sensing methods that have not been integrated into on-board or hand-held systems before * Assess the sensing capability of the proposed methods against AOAP capabilities * Eliminate from consideration methods that do not advance the state of the art for on-board and hand-held systems * Define likely embeddable device concepts that utilize the best sensing methods * Rank the devices on overall estimated performance and feasibility * List areas of significant predicted impact on AOAP and logistics operations by the proposed sensors and propose communications protocols
