Abstract: Flight launch tests typically require additional instrumentation remotely placed across the rocket; however harnesses for both data and power can be wrought with complexity and resulting incremental size, weight and power (SWaP) may affect the performance of the launch platforms. The compromise may be to trade-off instrumentation thus reducing valuable data collected during a flight test. Wireless solutions include leveraging standards found in wireless Internet-of-Things devices. However, congestion in the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) bands also may impact data collection. Innoflight proposes to develop a very low SWaP WAIC-based wireless system for flight test instrumentation based on its NASA-ARC SBIR 2016 Phase I, Wireless Sensor Piconet Radio (WiSPiR), a.k.a., ?owhisper.??
Benefits: Wireless instrumentation can augment wired instrumentation on a variety of systems, including launch systems, space systems and airborne systems. The application is not limited to flight test programs, but also fully-operational systems.
