Invocon Applications

MicroTAU

NASA is currently using 44 Enhanced Wide-Band MicroTAU (EWB MicroTAU) units to monitor the RCC panels on the wing leading edges of the Shuttle. This system was developed for NASA to detect impacts from foam during ascent and Micro-Meteroids and Orbital Debris (MM/OD) during space operation. As of May 2009, the system has successfully flown twenty times.

Invocon Applications

MicroWIS

The Micro-miniature Wireless Instrumentation (MicroWIS) System was used by a university in Houston, Texas, to study stresses on a local bridge during construction and testing. The application stemmed from concerns that significant portions of a bridges useful life may actually be expended in the construction process due to inadequate support of its members during handling and installation.
