The Adv Materials Innovations team (AMI) will meet this challenge by leveraging its recent work on sensor technology and systems.
Specific tasks for this work will be to achieve 1) Selection of commercially available COTS subsystems, 2) Optimize measurement sensitivity via artificial intelligence (AI),3) Reduced analyte identification time through deep learning algorithms. 4) Low data rate requirement using deep learning data reduction algorithms, 5) SWaP (size, weight and power) optimized sealed system with no moving parts.
The search for life on Ocean Worlds (e.g., Europa, Enceladus, Titan, etc.). Support of lunar and Mars exploration missions to detect water and organic materials. System flexibility enables repurposing for future missions.
Our initial estimates for sales volume is in the range of 1000’s of units per year, based on sales to the aerospace, refinery, pharmaceutical and chemical markets, where chemical sensors are a portion of this large market. The wearable health sensor market as a whole is shown in Figure 10. Out of this we have derived a $5 million market for our technology.
