Research Institution
"A miniature distributed data acquisition system with it's own wireless local area network (LAN), based on the IEEE 802.11b specification will be developed for airblast and explosion property measurements. This system LAN will operate at up to 11 Mbps andhave the added features of a synchronized clock controlling all of the remote data acquisition recorders. Since all of the recorders are connected to the central computer by the LAN, synchronizing the timing functions becomes a straight forward task. Thedata acquisition modules feature a dual LAN interface allowing either RF connection and/or a 2 wire cable connection for applications out side the targeted 1K meter RF range. Up to 30 recorders can be configured on the LAN with a mix of RF and cable. Upto 8 megabytes of nonvolatile storage will be available in each recorder with a conversion speed of 1 megahertz and a resolution of 12 bits. An assortment of front ends will be available on each recorder to service all of the sensors required for thisprogram. Technogy from 100K g shock recorders developed for Eglin and Kirtland AFB will be used as a basis for this program. Both the Military and commercial industry will benefit from this product by being able to measure events in harsh environments.Synchronized measurements of events will allow distributed measurements over a wide area .
