T0001-PBS Suborbital Flight Enviornment Monitor (SFEM)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

T0001-PBS Suborbital Flight Enviornment Monitor

The SFEM will monitor and record on-board environmental parameters of interest during a Flight Opportunities (FO) sRLV flight. These environmental parameters include 3-axis accelerations and G-loads, ambient pressure, relative humidity and temperature. The SFEM can record data for up to 4 hours. 

The SFEM is a low power environment monitor using battery power. The SFEM package contains 3-axis vibration and G-load monitors (a +/- 2g unit in the EDR-4, an external/remote +/- 200g unit connected to the EDR-4, and a +/- 10g unit for reading quasi static G's in the MSR145). The EDR-4 unit also includes relative humidity (RH) and temperature sensors. The MSR145 unit includes temperature, pressure in addition to the accelerometers previously mentioned. Sampling rates for accelerations will be as high as 2kHz. Sampling rates for RH, temperature, and pressure will generally be lower than 10Hz. The SFEM is a low power environment monitor using battery power.
