Abstract:

DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC. (DTI) PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN EXPENDABLE FIBER OPTIC BATHYPHOTOMETER. THE DISPOSABLE SENSOR CONSISTS OF A PHOTO-CHAMBER ENCASED IN A CONVENTIONAL FREE FALLING FISH-SHAPED BODY. BIOLUMINESCENT SIGNAL GENERATED IS SENSED AND TRANSMITTED FOR ON-BOARD AMPLIFICATION VIA AN OPTICAL FIBER LINE. THE PRINCIPAL ISSUE IS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SUCH A DEVICE IN GENERATING A DETECTABLE SIGNAL. IN PHASE I, DTI WILL CONSTRUCT A PROTOTYPE PHOTO-CHAMBER. THE TURBULENT PROPERTIES OF THE CHAMBER WILL BE MEASURED. KNOW CONCENTRATION OF BIOLUMINESCENT ORGANISMS WILL BE INJECTED THROUGH THE PROTOTYPE AND EXISTING CALIBRATED BATHYPHOTOMETERS. BY COMPARING THE HYDRODYNAMIC PROPERTIES AND THE RESPECTIVE RESPONSES, THE EXPENDABLE BATHYPHOTOMETER PERFORMANCE CAN BE DETERMINED. THE PHASE I RESEARCH WILL ESTABLISH THE CONCEPT FEASIBILITY AND IDENTIFY THE DEVELOPMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR PHASE II.
