Abstract:

In some conditions, flow excited bioluminescence caused by a submersible, diver or Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) can be observed at the surface, compromising clandestine operations. This project describes a design for a compact, robust, low power device that will measure a bioluminescent signature, the turbidity and depth of the operator and provide a simple prediction as to the likelihood of observation of that signature by an observer at the surface. The device is simple in concept and operation and provides feedback to the user in the form of a simple graphical interface. Use of the device will allow the operator to change speed, depth or course to minimize the signature, thus decreasing the probability of detection.
