Abstract
Crossfield's technical approach is a novel RF powered telemetry chip which not only uses the RF signal as a power source, but enables time synchronization among the multiple telemetry modules such that a relatively low risk time division multiplex scheme can be implemented. The Phase I effort is designed to significantly reduce the risk of this RF power and synchronization scheme by developing a prototype of the RF power rectification source and testing it in the turbine environment. Crossfield is uniquely qualified to execute the proposed effort. The principal investigator spent the majority of his career working in Honeywell's semiconductor operations, including developing telemetry that operated during 100,000 g gun launch accelerations and working in RF remotely powered applications. In addition, Crossfield's main business focus is harsh environment instrumentation.
