To address the Navy’s need for a new sensor for marine wave boundary turbulence and atmosphere characterization in submarines, Intellisense Systems, Inc. (Intellisense) proposes to advance the development of the Submarine Active Meteorological Sensor (SAMS), which utilizes light backscattering in the atmosphere to measure atmospheric parameters in the marine boundary layer. Specifically, the innovation in the sensor’s optical scheme and the use of a stable high-energy short-pulse laser will enable the SAMS to measure the distribution of multiple atmospheric parameters over distance with a single optical aperture and several laser pulses. In Phase I, Intellisense successfully demonstrated the feasibility of the SAMS technology through design and simulation of the SAMS operation. In Phase II, Intellisense plans to design and fabricate a fully integrated prototype system for remote turbulence measurements over the ocean surface. The prototype’s operation will be demonstrated at a test range that includes a measurement path over the ocean. Results of measurements will be compared with data collected from commercial scintillometers.
