Award List:

Embedded Optical Fiber Sensors in Solid Rocket Motor Cases

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: David V. Brower
Award Amount: $69,964.00
Abstract:
This research project will investigate the use of optical-fiber sensors within a solid rocket motor case. THese sensors will be multi-functional and possess the ability to measure displacement (or strain) and temperature. They will be capable of embedment "in-site" or can be bonded to the exterior… More
