PEL has done work for
major U.S. and Connecticut companies including Sikorsky
Aircraft, Dow Chemical, Electric Boat, and government
agencies such as ONR, NAVAIR and DARPA. Our new micro/nano
sensor products including smart micro composites and smart renewable nano coatings are being successfully applied to many new and
services include product and market development, process
optimization, manufacturing support, technology transfer, and
strategic planning. PEL is currently an industrial affiliate at the
University of Connecticut's Marine Sciences and Technology Center
in Groton, CT.
Current sensor activities involve applications of
smart micro sensors, renewable nano/micro coatings to ASW, container,
border, chem/bio, airport and aircraft security,
IED, missile and torpedo detection, underwater vehicle
tracking, and many other new promising products for industry, marine, and
Defense Current work involves
new passive, non-acoustic, anti-submarine smart sensor and
communication package development including system design,
and manufacturing feasibility, and non-cooperative
underwater vehicle tracking via smart sensors, and submarine
escape trunk hatch cofferdam system design and installation.
New smart sensor technology involves detection/
communication systems for IEDs, missiles, and torpedos.
& Surveillance PEL is developing new and novel low cost
sensors for shipping containers and port security. Over 16 million containers arrive in the
U.S. each year by truck
and in container ships posing potential CBW and radiation hazards.
Our new and novel sensors aim at protecting against these homeland
security threats. New smart sensor and renewable coating
technology involves border security, chem/bio detection,
aircraft (de-ice & wind shear) and airport (manpad)
security. PEL Detection & Surveillence Camera &
Communication Systems are state of the art Gen I-III and can
be tailored to various requirements for security, industry,
and defense applications
Transfer Novel patent protected smart sensors
are comprised of multilayer polymeric nano and micro-composites with applications in medical, electrical, industrial, defense and homeland security. These small, low cost, passive sensors are undetectable and will
trigger, detect, and communicate resulting information.
