10 – Collect data from sensors with wireless, energy autonomous, and remote access to follow mobile equipment
Name of the system:
Collect data from sensors with wireless, energy-autonomous, and remote access to follow mobile equipment
Lead entity within the SAMMBA consortium:
Air Liquide (reach out to us here)
Attachment point within the process chain of the Spaceport operator:
The sensors will provide data for the supervision of fluid operations, send data and alarms to operators working in the launch zone, detect fluid leaks, and collect data from sensors with the help of ultrasounds: collecting systems could be used by operators (or embedded on drones or AGV).
Major benefit within the process chain:
Several launch campaigns have failed in the past due to sensor malfunctions. Improvements in data quality, reliability, and availability by innovative sensor systems and IoT connectivity lead to various benefits. The innovation allows to reduce the time required for a launch campaign as well as the chances of a launch being delayed. This will in turn help spaceports operate effectively and reduce their operating
Anticipated R&D vector for the near/mid/long-term:
Further maturation of the technology could be the next R&D vector.
Modularity granted with the following standards:
The data collection via wireless sensors does not require special modifications and can be used at any spaceport, but depending on the solution, the connectivity infrastructure needs to be adapted in order for the sensor data to be fed into the operations.
Interoperability granted with the following standards:
The client needs to be able to process the data transmitted by the IoT sensors. Hence, interoperability of the digital infrastructure of the spaceport is key.
