Low-Cost Diagnostic System for Shipboard Environments

Proposal Summary

Electrical power data can be used to detect many shipboard fault conditions. Because power monitoring requires far less hardware than most modern diagnostic tools, a non-intrusive monitor could make condition-based maintenance affordable for ships with small operating budgets. In this project, researchers are developing a low-cost diagnostic platform, with testing aboard AUVs and Coast Guard Cutters.
