Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00014-07-M-0383
Award Amount: $69,998.00
 

Abstract:

The proposed STTR will develop a shock-hardened, autonomous, miniature, wireless multi-channel data acquisition system that is installed in payloads launched from various platforms. The system will be designed to survive impact loads at least ten times higher than those specified in the program solicitation and will also exceed the size and weight constraints for the final design. eTracia has defined a design approach for a Phase I program that will develop and refine the technical concepts based upon our existing hardware and firmware. In particular, the proposed system architecture will incorporate reconfigurable methodologies for the dynamic recognition, characterization, and accommodation of a plethora of sensors. Moreover, our architecture establishes a new design foundation that will allow for self biasing without human intervention. The package design will be based on our proprietary 3-D package (Cube), and will be used in Phase II to manufacture and test a prototype device. The 3-D structure of Cube substantially minimizes the damaging effects of shock loads thus providing an ideal packaging solution for extremely shock-hardened, self-contained microelectronic modules for military and commercial applications. The package design will be supported and the survivability validated by an extensive research effort utilizing the latest developments of the FEA.
