Acellent’s integrated Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system is comprised of three major components: SMART Layer® sensors, diagnostic hardware, and analytics software. A variety of SHM system configurations are available that work in "passive" listening mode, "active" interrogation mode, and even a combined "passive-active" mode. We provide an end-to-end solution for monitoring the integrity and condition of metal and composite structures across diverse industries.

Acellent provides an end-to-end solution for Structural Health Monitoring. Shown here is a helicopter with SMART Layer sensors installed on its frame. A technician, standing on the ground next to the helicopter, uses portable diagnostic hardware to interrogate the sensors and analyze the health of the structure.

SMART Layer® Sensors

The SMART Layer® is our proprietary sensor appliqué, designed to be permanently mounted to any structure. It consists of a network of distributed sensors of various types, embedded in a thin carrier film, with integrated wiring and connectors. Standard and custom designs are available. Whether you're retrofitting an existing structure or integrating it into a new one, installation couldn't be simpler.
