Abstract
ABSTRACT: The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a high temperature (225 degrees C +) energy harvesting solution for miniaturized smart wireless sensors that can be easily integrated with aircraft turbine engine components such as roller bearings and bearing assemblies to form a distributed engine control system (DCS). The wireless sensing suite, utilizing state-of-the-art high-temperature silicon-on-insulator (HTSOI) processes, will enable the next-generation of harsh environment aircraft turbine engine health monitoring. BENEFIT: The proposed technology will revolutionize the approach to health monitoring and control of aircraft engine, as well as other high performance aerospace components. This technology can also be widely applied in commercial industries such as power generation. In addition to the technical benefits to aerospace and industry partners, the development and commercialization of this technology will provide many high-tech and high-paying jobs to the State of Arkansas, which has been designated as a Highly Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone).
