Autonomous Distributed Plant Monitoring Network
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Develop a system architecture, CONOPS, and small scale demo for a system of self-powered wireless sensors to operate with an integrated operations and maintenance database application for monitoring a distributed set of large plant machines to support condition-based maintenance assessments and end-of-life predictions. BENEFIT: The results of this successful Phase I effort and Phase II prototype have far reaching potential in both the military and commercial domains. DoD labs and research facilities as well as countless industries operate large, expensive machinery where predictive maintenance is critical to cost effective performance and process availability. While there are numerous discrete components to support data logging and CBM efforts on the market today, the integrated, open source solution proposed here will provide an improved and effective answer to the need for CBM on distributed machinery plants.
