Abstract
In response to SBIR topic A07-023, Impact Technologies, collaborating with Allient Techsystems, Incorporated (ATK), proposes to develop and demonstrate a modular embedded vibration management platform for the collection, signal processing, real-time analysis, and reduction of vibration data. The proposed asset-mounted sensor will be capable of long term autonomous collection and analysis of vibration data from an integral multi-axis accelerometer. The author’s significant vibration experience will be used to modify existing analysis techniques for the sensor’s real time processing. All saved data and processing results will be transferable to an external system via an onboard USB port for further post processing. The authors will adapt existing Impact-developed embedded data acquisition systems for use in this program or utilize COTS components whenever possible. Impact is well positioned to leverage their experience and knowledge of vibration measurement systems in order to develop a commercializable product for application on a variety of systems, including unmanned aerial and ground vehicles. The proposed design will be demonstrated via prototype tests during Phase I.
