Product base for embedded electronic technology in aerospace and defense applications

May 30, 2024

Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM) highlights its proprietary E-WEBBINGS e-textile product base, specifically designed to serve as a customizable base for a wide range of smart textiles used in aerospace and defense applications such as material shielding; parachutes; seating and interior applications; crew safety system components; flight suits; air slides, seatbelts, and flotation devices. BRM E-WEBBINGS are currently being developed and tested for use as stress and strain sensors for NASA’s Artemus program.

These smart textiles are conductive fabrics that enable the electronic transmission of data, sensations (light, noise, vibrations, heat, etc.) and power. They allow for smaller final product size, lower weight, optimal user comfort, reduced bill of material and significant cost savings.

E-WEBBINGS narrow woven fabrics are made from a wide variety of fibers and conductive elements that allow electronics and digital parts to be embedded in them. BRM works with customers to design the structural and conductive components that allow for the detection and gathering of data depending on the specific applications.

Designers thoughtfully and carefully select each component and factor that goes into an E-WEBBINGS® textile, so the conductor, base webbing, power source, and sensor work seamlessly together. Conductive fibers or wires can be woven right into the E-WEBBINGS fabric, allowing for transmission of power and information without the need for additional wiring.
