Autonomous sensors with simultaneous wireless powering and communication will play significant role in future Structural Health Management SHM, and Test and Evaluation T and E systems for military assets by a reducing the expensive and time consuming installation and maintenance of wired sensorsdevices, and b increasing the limited lifetime of battery-operated wireless sensorsdevices. The scientific objective of this work is to improve the efficiency, range, and safety in terms of EMIEMC and signature of wireless powering of sensors using the recently discovered method of Strongly Coupled Magnetic Resonance SCMR. This project supports the DoD mission by leading to discoveries that will transform the development of a intelligent and efficient diagnostics and prognostics, andb lightweight and safe airborne structures with extended service life as well as reduced fuel and maintenance costs. Also, our research is expected to have significant impact to other important technologies for the Air-Force and DoD, such as, smart runways, nano-satellites, smart skins for hypersonic vehicles, autonomous portable devices, integrated circuits, and embedded sensors. In this report, we describe our progress during the third year of our grant.
