Armstrong's portfolio of fiber optic sensing technologies offers unparalleled options for high-resolution sensing.
Innovative software developed at Armstrong is laying the foundation for a collision avoidance system that would automatically take control of an aircraft that is in danger of crashing.
This new software system is capable of displaying the location and intensity of shock waves caused by supersonic aircraft. It can be integrated into cockpits or flight control rooms to help pilots place any loud booms in a specific location, minimizing their impact in populated areas. The system processes vehicle and flight parameters as well as data regarding current atmospheric conditions.
