20 July 1999 Early demonstration of remotely queried microsensors
Author Affiliations +
Prototype remotely queried embedded microsensor devices were installed on two US Navy platforms to verify the robustness of the transponder circuitry to survive in operational environments. Devices were installed on the Advanced Enclosed Mast/Sensor System aboard USS Radford in May 1998. These devices are in the high EMI environment of the SPS-40 radome. The devices were checked after deployment in October and were functioning normally. Devices were also installed on the Boeing AV-8B Harrier T1 aircraft and have successfully survived the vibration, temperature and acoustic noise environment of flight operations. These devices remain installed on these platforms and will be periodically checked to determine the suitability of the transponder circuitry for long term operation.
