Advanced sensors (e.g., FOSS and LMSG) will be investigated through a sequence of quasi-static load tests on representative "simple" soft-good test article(s) (i.e., a piece of fabric). The range of validity of the proposed sensors will be assessed. The experimental results will be quantified and compared with photogrammetry measurements. A guideline on the feasibility of these sensors will be established based on the proposed study. Upon successful validation, the proposed advanced sensors may potentially be utilized for monitoring and control applications for NASA/JPL projects such as Mars 2020, missions with EDL capability, as well as integration into dynamics testing procedures at JPL such as random vibration, acoustics, and shock.
