A SAW sensor will be fabricated by Dr. Zhang to be laced on a) the surface of a drone skin b) interior of the structure c) embedded in the structure A composite skin and frame will be fabricated using self‐sensing fibers supervised by Dr. D'SOuza a) on the skin b) within the structure c) within a core Both sensing systems will be connected to electrical resistance and impedance measurement systems and tested under flexural loads. Sensitivity and resolution will be determined against computational predicted values or conventional strain measurement systems supervised by Dr. Namuduri.
