Magneto-Elastic Sensing for Structural Health Monitoring

Structural health monitoring (SHM) is seen as a key technology to reduce cost land improve safety of operation of modern space vehicles. Future spacecraft require sensing technologies that are reliable, multi-purpose, durable, and long-lived. These sensors need to detect and characterize impact damage from space debris, assess structural integrity of the spacecraft, provide information on structural interfaces, explore spacecraft electrical signature, enable reusable component requalification for flight, and possibly conduct non-contact inspection in space.
