NASA has great interest in embedded sensor system with wireless data communication capabilities for a variety of applications, from ground testing, to flight testing, to in-service monitoring, etc. The proposed passive, wireless, high-temperature embedded sensor system provide a highly flexible instrumentation solution to monitor remote or inaccessible measurement locations for NASA's rocket propulsion test facilities.
The proposed wireless sensor system has many market applications in different industries such as exploration, defense, aviation, and civil and environmental engineering sectors. Other government agencies, including DOD, DOE, DOT will benefit from this technology. Passive, wireless, embedded sensor technologies for SHM and other applications are constantly being sought in many markets, especially those that require continuous monitoring of large infrastructures.
