Title: A COMPACT, LOW-POWER SUBMERSIBLE CHEMICAL ANALYZER PAYLOAD FOR AUTONOMOUS UNDERWATER VEHICLES
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00014-04-M-0057
Award Amount: $69,947.00
 

Abstract:

SubChem Systems proposes to design and develop a compact, low power submersible chemical analyzer payload for deployment on autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV). The primary objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a Micro AUV Ready Chemical (MARCHEM) Analyzer. This device will be capable of performing real-time, rapid response measurements of trace chemicals in marine waters. This sensor will use specialized low-power, miniature, electro-fluidic and optical detection devices to accomplish the chemical analysis. The objective of the Phase I effort is to produce a system design and to investigate the feasibility for the development of a MARCHEM analyzer for ammonia as a payload for two types of AUVs: micro-sized propeller-driven vehicles and coastal gliders. SubChem Systems is working closely with the Navy to ensure that the technologies meet service needs and will be adopted by end-users. Further, we are working with the manufacturers of AUVs to ensure a pathway to commercialization and marketing.
