Research Institution

The US Navy has identified the need for a through-hull communication system that can be used to extract information of the chemical contaminants within the cabin of a disabled submarine. We propose the development of an automated chemical sensing system which can be integrated with such a through-hull communication system. The sensor data can be "read" by an approaching remotely operated vehicle (ROV). In Phase I, the system will be designed and key components will be demonstrated. In Phase II, the full system will be developed and tested.
