Invocon Technology

Multichannel Event Sequencer

An 8-channel, flight-qualified solution for monitoring and initiating flight events. Each channel can be programmed independently, and it contains 16 channels of analog input for monitoring switch positions, destruct tones, and various other signals.

Invocon Applications

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

NASA utilized the Wide-Band Micro-Miniature Tri-Axial Accelerometer Unit, WB MicroTAU, to monitor a series of foam impact tests simulating the launch impact event on the Space Shuttle Columbia in early 2003. During this testing, 14 tri-axial units were located in and around the target articles and recorded impact signatures at 20,000Hz from each accelerometer.

Invocon Applications

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.
