Public Profile

Since its acquisition in August 2012 by NC based Lord Corporation, this long-time SBIR involved is now doing business as LORD MicroStrain® Sensing Systems., The firm make tiny sensors and systems used in a range of applications, including advanced manufacturing, off-highway vehicles, commercial and military manned and unmanned vehicles, civil structures, and down-hole tools. MicroStrain® Sensing Systems early development focused on producing micro-displacement sensors for strain measurement in biomechanics research applications. Their first sensors were designed for arthroscopic implantation on human knee ligaments; since then, product line expanded to includea broader line of micro-displacement sensors that could withstand extreme temperatures, hundreds of millions of cycles, and complete submersion in saline. The aerospace and automotive industry found our sensors met their requirements, and we've worked on many groundbreaking projects in these markets. By combining multiple sensors along with advanced micro controllers to enhance system performance, the firms was among the first sensor companies to add wireless capability so that low power, miniature digital sensors could communicate easily with personal computers and send data to the internet. Their inclinometer product line was initially developed to measure angles of limbs to help re-animate the limbs of paralyzed individuals. The tiny, lightweight gyro-enhanced orientation modules that resulted from this effort found immediate acceptance for navigation and control of unmanned systems in the military, exploratory robotics applications and measurement feedback for down-hole tools.
