Abstract
Over time the stabilizers used in PAD/CAD devices to prevent NOX buildup are depleted, which can lead to unintended detonation, and has done so on occasion. Current technology solutions cannot accurately measure these stabilizer concentrations in situ. International Electronic Machines Corporation (IEM) demonstrated the potential for a wireless, self-contained monitoring system for PAD/CAD devices in the Phase I of our Stabilizer Level Accurate Measurement System (SLAMS) development, with a unique low-power miniature sensor node design with smart sampling capability and onboard memory, MEMS chemiresistor-based sensors, and a clear roadmap for multi-year endurance installed. In Phase II, IEM will develop the SLAMS system to a full prototype. This will include development of sensors able to measure and discriminate between stabilizer and its daughter products, creation of a miniature sensor node with a low profile to fit within the PAD/CAD casings, integration of sensors and node with a long-term power supply, and tests and demonstrations showing the operation of sensor and data collection system in both laboratory and realistic conditions. This will include environmental testing and use with actual propellant units in controlled situations. During the Phase II Option, additional sensors are expected to be developed for other target compounds.
