SansEC: Electrical Sensors with No Electrical Connections

SansEC is a NASA-developed wireless sensor technology that is damage tolerant and requires no electrical connections. Unlike other sensors, a SansEC sensor can be designed for measurements unrelated to each other - like temperature and fluid level - and easily switch from one to another or do both simultaneously.

Finding Victims Trapped in Rubble with NASA Radar Device

Quickly detecting living victims buried in rubble or other debris greatly increases their chances of rescue and survival. This is especially true in situations where there are multiple rubble piles or large extents of debris. The ability to rapidly assess whether there are live victims at a particular site allows effective allocation of search and rescue resources. A rapid victim detection system will help first responders more effectively and efficiently save lives.

Economical Deployment of a Low Maintenance Asynchronous Health Monitoring System via Smart Energy Harvesting Instrumentation

Rocket engines and related hardware undergo extensive propulsion testing before being accepted into service. Ground propulsion testing can incur unexpected schedule delays and cost overruns due to untimely maintenance, repair, or replacement of unique valves. Efforts for monitoring the operational condition of the test facility valves drove the development of a novel Valve Health Monitoring System (VHMS).
