Abstract
THIS PROJECT CONCERNS A REAL TIME HYDROGEN, OXYGEN MONITORING DEVICE THAT, IF SUCCESSFUL, COULD HELP ASSESS THE STATUS OF A ROCKET LAUNCH ENVIRONMENT. THE DEVICE IS SIMPLE, OPERABLE WITH MINIMAL ATTENTION AND RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE SO THAT A NUMBER OF DEVICES COULD BE STRATEGICALLY LOCATED. THE RESEARCH EXPLORES THE FEASIBILITY OF ELECTROCHEMICALLY SENSING HYDROGEN AND OXYGEN WITH A NOVEL MINIATURE ELECTRODE. IF THIS APPROACH IS SUCCESSFUL, IT WILL LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A RUGGED, FAST, INEXPENSIVE AND ACCURATE DEVICE FOR MONITORING THESE GASES IN THE FIELD. THE PHASE I DEMONSTRATION INVOLVES THE CONSTRUCTION AND TESTING OF THE PROPOSED STRUCTURE. SPECIAL ATTENTION IS PAID TO THE RELIABILITY, RESPONSE TIME, SELECTIVITY, ACCURACY, PRECISION AND DETECTIVITY OF THE DEVICE.
