Research Institution

The proposed effort will establish technical feasibility of a high-performance size-, weight-, and power-optimized distributed fiber-optic sensing platform appropriate for deep spaceflight missions and amenable to harsh launch, entry, descent, and landing environments. Custom and commercial off-the-shelf sensors and sensor arrangements appropriate for multi-parameter sensing in thermal protection systems of interplanetary landers will be investigated. The proposed technology is applicable to both rigid and flexible thermal protection systems.
