Implementation of Wireless TPS Sensors
MetadataShow full item record
The initial development of a wireless TPS sensor system has proposed many inquiries to the requirements and benefits compared to the wired technology presently used for flight. The University of Idaho and NASA Ames have prototyped and tested a wireless multi nodal sensor system. A flight system integration analysis has been conducted to compare the integration of a wireless Thermal Protection System (TPS) sensor network to a wired system. A case study of the LE-X sensor suite has been completed to compare and contrast the mass, power, cost and data requirements between each topology.
