Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 03-1
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using a distributed fiber-optic sensor system to monitor high electrostatic voltages and surface electrical charge density on spacecraft components. Based on functional material jacketed FBG sensors and WDM technologies, the sensor system features noise immunity to electromagnetic interference, good e...
