Sensor Networks to Design and Build 253 Element Transducer for NASA
Sensor Networks, Inc. (SNI) is pleased to announce its recent NASA Contract award # 80NSSC18P0895 of $77, 495. to design and fabricate a custom 253-element circular ultrasonic array transducer.
The "UT Probe" will be used in a phased-array ultrasonic test configuration to do research at NASAís Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA on the Advanced Composites Project. NASA research scientist, Dr. Patrick Johnston, indicates that heíll be using this novel approach to measure composite-fiber orientation and waviness in the materialís matrix structure.
NASA plans to sign-off on the unique transducer design in April and take delivery in Spring 2018.
Bob Shaffer, Senior UT Applications Engineer and SNIís GM, Jeff Anderson indicate that the company is pleased to have this special opportunity to develop custom transducers that advance the state-of-the-art of high-strength aerospace composite materials research.
