Abstract:

Polestar Technologies, Inc. proposes a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project to demonstrate the feasibility of a compact optical monitor for continuous dissolved oxygen monitoring in areas at risk of eutrophication induced hypoxia and anoxia. The proposed monitor will facilitate the development of improved theoretical models by enabling better data collection with regard to spread and degree of oxygen reduction occurring in the suspect areas. An innovative sensor design is presented which incorporates a unique biostatic barrier designed to inhibit biological encapsulation of the system¿s sensing membrane. The Phase I effort will demonstrate the effectiveness of the new biostatic barrier technology by monitoring the performance of prototype oxygen sensors in environments where algae proliferation is taking place.
