In electricity generation, online monitoring of critical components is key to making advances. Uninterrupted operation can bring about big reductions in operating costs and is vital to the implementation of modern asset management principles. The resulting energy cost reductions in Europe amount to multi-milliopn Euro savings, with similar potential within the petrochemical and other industries.

This project's main objective is to produce a multi-channel, passive, batteryless, remote monitoring system operating at 600C. The sensors will be based on surface acoustic wave devices on a special piezoelectric substrate material.
