Abstract
Development of materials for sensor technology is a significant and challenging area in current and future aerospace applications. There is increasing demand for high temperature sensors that operate accurately and reliably in extreme environments to enable vehicle health monitoring. In this proposal, a novel idea for high temperature exposure sensor, which is based on metallurgical transformations is proposed. The main focus during the Phase I program will be the demonstration of concept and to develop the most suited alloy composition and measurement method. The reliability of this method of high temperature sensing will be determined by careful experimentation.
