Field Deployable PiezoElectric Gravimeter (PEG)
NASA-Stennis Space Center, MS, United States
Piezoelectric stimulus-response quantification based gravimeter (PEG) quantifies gravitational effects on piezoelectric elements. Shear mode piezoelectric elements provided with excitation energy causing highly reproducible response across a full frequency spectrum, i.e., the piezoelectric stimulus-response effect. Piezoelectric transducer takes static measurements versus conventional use that requires a dynamically changing quantity.
Primary Application Area: IT, Cyber-Security, Software
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 8
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: We seek to commercialize this technology through partner licensing to provide benefits to the marketplace. This design is a large improvement over current gravimeters in the market. This is not a conventional gravimeter, the PEG uses piezoelectric instrumentation in a completely new way, reversing their role.
