Abstract:

FIBER OPTIC ELECTRIC FIELD AND VOLTAGE SENSING SYSTEMS TO SUPPORT NAVAL SHIPBOARD MONITORING, CONTROL, ELECTRICAL DISTRIBUTION, AND PROPULSION SYSTEM MEASUREMENT REQUIREMENTS WILL BE DEVELOPED IN THE PROPOSED PROGRAM. THESE SENSORS OFFER SIGNIFICANT COST AND PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGES TO NAVY MEASUREMENT REQUIREMENTS. THESE ADVANTAGES INCLUDE OPTICAL ISOLATION OF HIGH VOLTAGES FROM PERSONNEL AND DATA RECORDING INSTRUMENTATION, THE POTENTIAL FOR LOWER COST, HIGHER ACCURACY INSTRUMENTATION, AND IMMUNITY TO THE EFFECTS ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) AND ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE (EMP). THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I PROGRAM IS THE DEVELOPMENT AND FIELD DEMONSTRATION OF A FIBER OPTIC VOLTAGE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR SHIPBOARD USE.
