Title: Ultra-low Power Wireless Sensors for Advanced, In Situ Structural Health Monitoring
Agency: DOD
Contract: W9132T-12-C-0020
Award Amount: $364,999.00
 

Abstract:

The integrity of military and civil infrastructure is critical to the safety and continued operations of the armed forces, commercial enterprises, and the everyday lifestyle of the American public. In order to reduce the need for costly scheduled maintenance while also preventing the potentially catastrophic failure of such structures, a multi-modal distributed sensor network must be developed to provide a comprehensive view of the structure"s state of health. To accomplish this, Luna is developing an ultra-low power wireless sensor network for advanced, in situ structural health monitoring. This system will be made up of devices operating from harvested energy sources, will measure environmental, mechanical, and corrosivity parameters, and will support advanced embedded diagnostics and prognostics for predicting structural health and remaining useful life. Existing Luna technologies will be leveraged and enhanced to rapidly achieve the technical goals of the program and advance the commercialization of this technology, ultimately deploying the system on a relevant structure within the Phase II program. Luna will utilize years of experience in corrosion, environmental, and structural health monitoring and will team with Purdue"s Intelligent Infrastructure Systems Laboratory to deploy a fully functional prototype system at the end of the Phase II effort.
