Corrosion Monitoring System

Captain Corrosion OÜ is developing corrosion monitoring systems for applications, where the life cycle of materials needs to be monitored remotely. In particular, our focus has been on developing sensors and systems pipes (oil, gas, water) and space satellites. The technology is based on the Europe patent application EP20177638.2, which was filed on 1.st June 2020. In near future the technology is planned to be demonstrated on satellites ESTCube-2 and WISA Woodsat. On ESTCube-2 a compact 41×65 mm module will be used to test up to 15 materials on in low Earth orbit (LEO). On WISA Woodsat however, two compact sensors (5×20 mm) are used to monitor the corrosion of wood in space.

The development of corrosion monitoring systems has been funded by Captain Corrosion OÜ, receiving partial co-funding from Enterprise Estonia (EAS) through projects EU 51950 and EU53688.
