Extreme Environment Sensors and Electronics

Sensors and electronics systems with improved performance and capabilities that can operate at high temperature or in extreme environments


  • Sensing and microelectronics for the harshest environments, including the highest temperatures
  • Silicon carbide microfabrication processing
  • Device integration, packaging, and extreme-environment testing

What we’re working on

Demonstration of long-lived convoluted thermocouples for ceramic temperature

Physical Sensors

Innovative harsh environment physical sensing and instrumentation technologies are under development by NASA Glenn Research Center to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery, and aeronautics research.
