Crossing this tech-nology development “valley of death” affordably is key to bringing these technologies online.

This implies the development of sensors, actuators, and electronics, with associated packaging, that will be able to operate under the harsh environments present in an engine.

However, given the harsh environments inherent in propulsion systems, the development of engine-compatible electronics and sensors is not straightforward.

Today, structural ceramics have become commodities in many fields of mechanical engineering, automotive, aerospace, and biomedical engineering. This is the result of more than 40 years of development and continuous improvement of high-performance materials, such as alumina, zirconia, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, and various composite ceramics.

Advanced sensors and actuators, together with exponential improvements in computer technology, are causing a surge of interest in the development of "intelligent" structures and equipment.

Scientists and engineers are investigating materials systems that are capable of monitoring condition, changing shape, controlling vibrations, accommodating.
