Abstract
AGILTRON proposes to realize a new MEMS energy scavenger capable of powering in-situ micro sensors and their wireless modules under harsh operational environments. The design overcomes current shortcomings and achieves sufficient power output, reliability, miniature size, and low cost. The approach incorporates several innovations including stable electromagnetic structure, efficient power generation, wide frequency response, and advanced packaging. The approach is suitable for near term commercialization. In the Phase I program, a state-of-the-art MEMS vibration array, ruggedized assembly and package that meet the power and reliability operational requirements for naval aircraft environments will be demonstrated. Fully functional devices will be produced in Phase II.
