Temperature and stress sensor by reflectometry along a cable

Temperature and stress sensor by reflectometry along a cable

Triangle Bleu

General goal

The activity investigates reflectometry techniques to measure the temperature and stress inside a PTC cable in order to uncover any mechanical default/failure and its accurate physical position. To this aim specific material (matrix/dopant) and cables will be designed, manufactured, and tested in a laboratory environment. The reflectometry measurement techniques will be also elaborated.

Operational goals

The project is structured into four phases :

  • Literature survey and user requirements for space applications
  • Material and measurement technique selection
  • Selected technique implementation
  • Testing and evaluation
