Creating system-level approaches to improving performance in harsh operating environments, Luna's Systems Group team of engineers has the expertise to develop new miniaturized electronics, robust hardware, computational models, applied machine learning, diagnostic software, and standardized test methodologies.
Asset management and monitoring focused on condition-based maintenance (CBM) technologies that monitor, analyze, and report the state of health of high value assets. Our monitoring solutions increase asset availability and reduce the cost of inspection and repair. Monitoring applications include aircraft corrosion maintenance, coatings integrity, actuator health, and lubrication systems.
New techniques for quantifying material changes without disrupting or damaging critical assets. Using nondestructive methods such as ultrasonics and eddy current measurements, we detect microstructure changes and cracking caused by material fatigue, aging, corrosion, or heat damage. Nondestructive inspection and evaluation informs maintenance practices that can prevent unexpected failures and extend service life.
Data Analytics and Machine Learning
Processing, analyzing, and reporting on data relevant to the health and operational state of critical systems. We use signal processing, analytics, and embedded algorithms to identify and extract significant features, implement diagnostic and prognostic models, and report results in a format that is easily understood by all users.
Materials Performance Monitoring
Systems and methods that fundamentally improve the way materials are tested and qualified. Luna’s advancements use time-based measurements to quantify damage accumulation during testing. We generate high confidence results that are used to assess materials performance to decrease risk and reduce time-to-market when introducing new coatings, alloys, and composites.
