This project surveyed aircraft at various locations within and on the aircraft to help determine the type and amount of energy available for harvest.
Researchers looked at vibration, strain, thermal and RF energy levels. Measurements were made at several locations on and within the aircraft. An assessment of these energy levels was made for all status of the aircraft, i.e. storage, docked, taxi, climb, cruise, and decent.
Results were used to develop an available energy profile for the aircraft.
