Sensors for Displacement Measuring
Instant, comprehensive reporting of aircraft health, from nose to rudder
Optimize communication, data analysis, and battery life with a Wireless Network
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.
Accurate Measurements of Vital Performance, Built to Fit Your Application
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.
Effective and accurate torque monitoring has been, and will continue to be, an ongoing challenge in the industrial, agricultural, and aerospace arenas. Torque measurements are useful as an indicator of mechanical system health and desirable for test and production run assets. Recent adoption of wireless technology provides a more convenient and, arguably, more accurate measurement of torque. Work presented here is representative of LORD MicroStrain® Sensing Systems efforts working with the military flight test community on an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV).
