The wireless sensing system developed allows for sensing in and around the body (e.g. hypoxia monitoring, physiological status monitoring, acoustic dosage, hearing protection validation). Triton Systems is a technology incubator with a long track-record of developing innovative solutions and successfully transitioning many of them to commercial products. The initial application is wireless in-ear pressure monitoring for pilots and is also being expanded for physiological status monitoring and acoustic dosage monitoring. The microsystem developed is the only in-ear sensing system platform successfully developed for extended use and continuous transmission of data. The first complete sensing systems have been developed. Triton also develops nonlinear hearing protection. Triton is seeking additional Defense customers in need of tiny sensing solutions such as hypoxia monitoring, and hearing protection validation.
Liner wear in spherical bearings can be accelerated by liquid and solid contamination. Preliminary testing has demonstrated that this contamination-resistant bearing reduces contamination without significant additional friction or cost, increasing bearing life, and reducing scheduled maintenance. The modification will not impact bearing installation time, procedures or required equipment. This patent-pending solution is targeted to the V-22 Osprey and other military rotorcraft being fielded in contaminant-rich environments, but has applications in construction equipment and motor vehicles. It can be adapted to custom and standard spherical bearing sizes, and is being developed and tested with a major bearing manufacturer. This advanced technology firm seeks program funding from program managers and prime contractors for implementation with other equipment operational in contaminant-rich environments.
