Contract: W31P4Q-06-C-0339
Award Amount: $730,000.00
 

Abstract:

Acellent Technologies has proposed to develop a self-powered structural health monitoring system for use in monitoring of mission critical structures such as missiles or combat vehicles in the field. The system will be completely autonomous having the capabilities for (1) Energy harvesting for self-power generation, (2) Integrated sensors for robustness, (3) Sensor self-calibration for improved reliability and (4) Real-time detection of impact damage and location on structures. In Phase I the primary focus was on proving the feasibility of energy harvesting using Acellent's SMART Layer and developing the requirements for prototype system development in Phase II. An energy harvesting team was also formed that includes, Acellent, Boeing, SRI International and VirginiaTech. In Phase II the team will design the sensor and power storage for maximum power generation as well as investigate applications for the developed system.
