Abstract
THE RAPID, CONTINUOUS MEASUREMENT OF RELATIVE HUMIDITY IN FAST FLOWING GAS STREAMS IS A MATTER OF A MAJOR CONCERN NOT ONLY FOR FLIGHT REQUIREMENTS, BUT ALSO FOR MANY INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES. WHILE MANY METHODS EXIST AT PRESENT, THEY ALL SUFFER LIMITATIONS AND THERE ARE NO TRULY RELIABLE INSTRUMENTS FOR MEASUREMENTS AT EITHER EXTREME OF HUMIDITY OR TEMPERATURE. THE INSTRUMENT TO BE BUILT UNDER THIS CONTRACT WILL OPERATE UNDER A WIDE RANGE OF HUMIDITY AND TEMPERATURE. IT IS EXPECTED TO HAVE A FAST RESPONSE TIME WITHOUT HYSTERESIS. IT IS ALSO EXPECTED TO BE IMMUNE TO AMBIENT EFFECTS SUCH AS ACCELARATION AND TEMPERATURE. IT WILL BE SMALL IN PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS AND REQUIRE LITTLE ENERGY TO OPERATE.
