Abstract
A sensor was developed in the Phase I effort that enabled the measurement of a wear liner thickness in a bearing. The goal of the Phase II effort is to mature that sensor into a system that can be qualified in spherical bearings such as AS81820 and AS81819. To reach that goal, NanoLab and its subcontractors will refine the sensor design, demonstrate their insertion and operation in a bearing environment, develop readout electronics for maintainers, and test the bearings with sensors against the applicable standards.
