The developed technology can benefit NASA missions in maintaining thermal insulation for in-situ exploration missions to planetary bodies with extreme environments including Venus and Titan. Also, it can benefit sample return mission capsules where extremely tight sealing is required to provide the necessary planetary protection with a very low probability of leakage. Further, It is important to point out that piezoelectric materials are the transduction material and key to our mechanisms. The developed concept of high efficiency mechanism for wireless transmission of high power and signals through solid walls including metallic using Acoustic-Electric feed-through can greatly benefit the space industry and other government agencies. Potential user of this technology is the Navy for submarines instrumentation powering and communication with the crew without the use of wires that weaken the structure. The developed mechanism can also relieve cabling constraints during assembly.More »
