LORD MicroStrain’s distributed rotorcraft wireless health monitoring systems provide a wealth of information about aircraft component health and usage.
Synchronized wireless and hard-wired sensor network on rotating components includes energy harvesting to eliminate battery maintenance and improve SHUMS on Sikorsky MH-60S.
A distributed network of MicroStrain’s wireless sensors and its cloud-based data management portal, SensorCloud, were used by NASA to monitor the affects of acoustic shock on Kennedy Space Center equipment.
Integrated structural health monitoring and reporting system for use on pitch link of Navy Bell M412 helicopter synchronizes distributed miniature sensors and active RFID in a low-power network.
MicroStrain’s wireless sensor system is demonstrated in flight tests for direct load monitoring on Bell M412 rotating components along side energy harvesting and energy aware operating modes.
Wireless sensor networks with integrated energy harvesting capabilities demonstrate autonomous helicopter pitch link monitoring and condition based maintenance for NAVAIR.
