The anticipated initial market of the NM sensors is for shock front arrival testing in hypervelocity testing facilities. Testing with NASA centers would allow improvements in sensor materials, electronics and packaging, and potentially allow the transition of related products to operational vehicles.
Primary customers would be university, government laboratory and aerospace industry researchers. Distributed pressure mapping on air vehicles as well as in biomedical devices and other systems may have merit. Further, the thin film sensor elements may be used as air flow or water flow devices in systems where either low weight, low surface profile, lack of need for space below the flow surface, or high sensitivity at a low cost are needed.
