  2. Development of a Miniature, Vibro-Mechanical Energy Harvester for Powering Wireless Sensors

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N07178

    A major barrier to the widespread adoption of wireless sensors for structural health monitoring is the requirement to power the network of wireless nodes. Batteries have a limited lifespan, adding significant size, weight, and costs to the wireless sensor network,and may represent a long term environmental problem. Battery maintenance can be eliminated by harvesting energy from the environment. Fo ...

  3. Control Surface Buffet Load Measurement

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N091013

    Structural monitoring of Navy aircraft is of critical importance as the fleet ages. One critical area includes the control surfaces, which are subject to intense, dynamic buffet loading which can lead to structural cracking. The highly transient nature of buffet loading makes it difficult to measure using conventional sensors. We propose to solve this problem by combining a network of time-synchro ...

  6. Power Harvesting for Shipboard Health Monitoring Sensors

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N02124

    This Phase II Navy SBIR proposal is aimed at the development of a new class of wireless sensing devices. These sensors do not require batteries or external magnetic fields in order to send data, instead, they rely on harvesting vibrational energy in order to sense information and to wirelessly transmit that information to a central host. MicroStain, Inc. produces a range of wireless sensing in ...

  7. Micro Air-launched Expendable Meteorological Sonde (MAXMS) with Selective Availability Anti Spoofing Module (SAASM)-compatible GPS

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N03116

    Phase I research was conducted to prove the feasibility of developing a Micro-sized Air-launched Expendable Meteorological Sonde (MAXMS) for both military and research purposes. Conceptual designs were developed for an instrument that can be launched from standard aircraft countermeasures dispensers and that can achieve the required measurement accuracy. Two variants of the design, SAASM compatibl ...

  8. Over-the-Horizon Communications for Small Autonomous Ground Based Observations

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N03139

    There is a need for the capability to transmit data from various types of unattended ground based sensors such as biological/chemical, meteorological, audio/video surveillance, communication monitoring/decoying and vehicle/personnel movement sensors. These sensors will be precision air deployed using standard countermeasures dispensers and will be packaged in standard flare and chaff countermeasu ...

  9. Airborne and Air-Deployed Multi-Sensor Search Optimization

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N04022

    Since the Second World War, increased performance has been acquired by investing heavily in expensive new sensor hardware, at the near exclusion of developing new algorithms and tactics to optimize use of sensors in complex environments. The shift toward threats in just such hostile areas demands a more synergistic approach wherein new sensors breed new tactics, and possibly vice versa. The opti ...

  10. CURVE (Coordinated UAV Routing in Variable Environments)

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N04T003

    The objective is to determine the best algorithmic approach to optimally select unmanned vehicle flight paths that maximize mission success for attached sensors. That involves trade-offs between a) active emissions and passive collections, b) high and low altitudes, c) high and low speeds, d) day and night operations, e) rough and smooth terrain, f) accuracy and efficiency, etc. The solutions wi ...
