Abstract:

SUTRON CORPORATION WILL MODIFY THE SENSOR HEAD OF AN AIR FORCE AN/FMQ-13(V) HOT FILM SENSOR TO OPERATE ON 12-VOLT POWER. THE SERIAL DIGITAL OUTPUT WILL BE MODIFIED TO PROVIDE WIND SPEED, WIND DIRECTION, BAROMETRIC PRESSURE, AND AIR TEMPERATURE TO AN IBM-PC OR COMPATIBLE. WIND TUNNEL EXPERIMENTS WILL BE CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE ACCURACY CRITERIA FOR OPERATION AT LOW (10 AND 20 DEGREE C) OVERHEAT TEMPERATURES. A 12-VOLT POWER SUPPLY WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH MINIMIZES POWER CONSUMPTION AT LOW OVERHEATS. TESTS WILL BE CONDUCTED TO EVALUATE POWER SAVINGS FROM SOFTWARE-CONTROLLED VARIABLE OVERHEAT OPERATION AND SOFTWARE-CONTROLLED SAMPLING. A POWER BUDGET WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR AN ALL CMOS, LOW-OVERHEAT DESIGN. DELIVERABLES INCLUDING THE MODIFIED SENSOR HEAD, DOCUMENTATION FOR THE SERIAL INTERFACE, AND A TEST REPORT SUMMARIZING THE WORK AND RESULT.
