Abstract:

The objective for this SBIR program is to develop and demonstrateone or more integrated sensor devices that will measure,simultaneously and at the same location, temperature, electricalconductivity, and depth (via a MEMS pressure transducer). Weemploy a sensor technology that, by design, can be mass-producedat low cost, yet achieves performance that is the same orsuperior to that currently available . The same basic sensordesign will be capable of supporting a variety of deploymentstrategies, from numerous platforms, with the initial emphasisbeing on expendable devices. In Phase I, Aret¿ developed aprototype oceanographic conductivity and temperature sensorsystem, a breadboard circuit, a brass-board, circuit, and aprototype power circuit. The design was accomplished with low-cost, simplicity, and high-performance as the main drivers. Themulti-layer ceramic circuit card, which is the platform for bothsensors and electronics, was prototyped. For Phase II, Aret¿ willconcentrate on the development of a multi-chip-module (MCM) andintegrate a MEMS-technology pressure transducer on the sensorsubstrate. We will manufacture a small number of prototypesensors and test them at sea. Options are included to broaden themeasurement capability beyond the expendable device.
