Abstract
WE HAVE RECENTLY DEVELOPED A DURABLE INFRARED OPTICAL HUMIDITY SENSOR FOR AIRBORNE IN-CLOUD USE. WE ARE CURRENTLY ADAPTING THIS SENSOR FOR USE IN THE EXTREME PRESSURES AND TEMPERATURES OF PRIMARY COOLANT LOOPS OF GAS-COOLED NUCLEAR REACTORS. IN THIS PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WE WILL THEORETICALLY AND EXPERIMENTALLY SHOW THAT IT IS FEASIBLE TO ADOAPT OUR EXISTING NON-CONTACT MOISTURE SENSING TENCHNOLOGY TO THE HARSH SHIPBOARD MARINE ENVIRONMENT. IN PHASE II WE WILL BUILD A SHIPBOARD PROTOTYPE AND SUBJECT IT TO LABORATORY FIELD, AND SEA TRIALS.
