Abstract:

THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITYOF MONITORING BOTH SUBMARINE VELOCITY AND SEA ENVIRONMENT WITH A NOVEL ELECTROCHEMICAL SENSOR. THE PROPOSED SENSOR CONSISTS OF CATALYZED METAL FILMS WHICH COAT A QUARTZ DISK MOUNTED FLUSH WITH THE DECK. THE RESEARCH FOCUSES ON DEVELOPING SENSORS WITH ELECTRODE GRIDS FINE ENOUGH SO THAT DETECTION OF CHANGES IN CONCENTRATION BOUNDARY LAYERS CAN BE MONITORED. THE NOVEL APPROACH IS TO GENERATE SMALL AMOUNTS OF CHLORINE AND HYDROGEN ON THE SENSOR SURFACE AND ACCURATELY TRACK THEIR MOTION WITH TIME. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM INVOLVES DEVELOPING TECHNIQUES FOR FABRICATING THE SENSOR, TESTING THE SENSOR, AND DEVELOPING ELECTRONIC TECHNIQUES FOR THE DIGITAL OUTPUT OF THE SEA STATE AND THE RELATIVE WATER SPEED ACROSS THE SUBMARINE'S DECK.
