Research Institution
The proposed solution is to leverage LIT’s experience in designing and fielding military hardware and sensor-related technologies and teaming with Texas Instruments, a major manufacturer of related technologies, to develop a soundly engineered miniature intelligent wireless missile sensor platform by utilizing an evolving approach to size reduction and power management. Key areas to be addressed: • Advance manufacturing technology to chip-scale packaging, including: Chip-on-Board technology, Hybrid technology • Stackable or Flexible PCBs (Form Factor) • Power-saving protocols • Teaming with Texas Instruments (TI) for access to the following: Lowest power components, Smallest chip-scale components, Application Support, Reference designs LIT is uniquely qualified to design a miniaturized intelligent wireless missile sensor platform because of experience with low-power embedded monitoring systems and the development of miniaturized components. LIT developed embedded software for the Remote Readiness Asset Prognostics and Diagnostic System (RRAPDS) program, which provides munitions readiness indication, health monitoring, and environmental monitoring for tactical assets. LIT also designed a new launcher test set to replace the legacy system for the Patriot Guided Missile Launching Station Test Set (LSTS) program to eliminate obsolescence. LIT’s redesigned launcher test reduced the overall size, power consumption, weight, and cost of the LSTS system significantly.
