Title: Cost-Effective Technologies for Fabrication of PiezoCrystal Vector Velocity Sensors
Agency: DOD
Contract: N00014-13-M-0016
Award Amount: $149,998.00
 

Abstract:

We propose to develop cost-effective velocity vector sensor technology by reducing costs to the accelerometers within the device. By optimizing both crystal and hardware, single crystal materials costs can be reduced. TRS will also evaluate assembly of sub-structures to reduce labor through automation (i.e. pick-and-place or other bulk processing). Through modeling and prototype assembly, and development of a cost model, key factors in accelerometer costs will be determined and possible solutions to reducing these will be provided at the end of the program. The prototype built will be compared with legacy devices to insure performance meets requirements.
