Abstract
The proposed SBIR will continue the development of a shock hardened data recorder intended to support penetrating weapons testing. McQ has defined a design approach for a Phase II program that will develop and refine the technical concepts based upon the prototype recording system developed in Phase I. During Phase I we designed, developed, fabricated, and tested a prototype recorder to demonstrate our capability to produce a product that met or exceeded customer requirements in terms of features and shock survivability. In Phase II we will use the prototype design as a springboard to achieve a refined designed that incorporates new customer requirements, such as additional enhanced analog acquisition channels, an integrated accelerometer, and expanded communications capabilities. The result will be a recorder that is ready for manufacture in large numbers. Using engineering and manufacturing techniques that are currently being used with our miniature disposable iScoutT sensor system and OmniSenser unattended ground sensor systems, we will develop and manufacture a quantity of these G-hardened recorders for delivery to the Air Force and demonstrate them during the Phase II effort.
