A monitoring system developed by Scott Jensen of Carriere, an engineer at Stennis Space Center, has been recognized as one of the Top 100 NASA-developed technologies.
Jensen recently received a certificate of achievement for development of a wireless, one-way, sensor-to-base station monitoring system for explosive and non-hazardous environments. Developed a number of years ago, the system has gone through several iterations and uses at Stennis, been patented and previously used commercially.
The recognition was part of the Create the Future 2015 Design Contest sponsored by the NASA Tech Briefs group. Each year, the group sponsors a public design contest to help stimulate and reward engineering innovation.
A graduate of the University of South Alabama, Jensen has worked at Stennis for more than 15 years
