Abstract:

The new pressure sensor/transmitter technology for marine flow valves represents enormous advantages over existing marine pressure measurement devices. The new technology would meet virtually all the U.S. Navy needs in flow pressure/rate sensing at a fraction of the cost of what it presently costs the Navy to purchase. These low cost "pliable" sensors can be directly integrated in piping and valving adjacent to the flow of fluids or gasses. The technology offers significantly more accurate sensor measurements than are presently available with `pressure diaphragm' or other resistive sensor related techniques. The manufacture is a low cost production process that can easily be geared from few to mass output levels. The devices themselves are immune to temperature drift and will be available in small/very low profile packaging size that is pliable and can be directly attached to the interior walls of pipes and fittings.
