Abstract

D???Angelo Technologies, LLC will meet the SBIR objective to integrate an electro-textile conductive network by embedding it into the parachute canopy to enable data and power transport to sensors and actuators by using discrete conductors. D???Angelo Technologies will shield the conductors and use the parachute seams for channeling the network. The attachment and termination methods to be used will allow sensors to be place strategically on the parachute without significantly impacting parachute performance.
