Abstract
OPTRA, INC. PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND DEMONSTRATE A DYNAMIC BLAST AND SHOCK GAUGE BASED ON THE STRESS-OPTIC EFFECT IN COMBINATION WITH AN OPTICAL READOUT. THE PROPOSED TECHNIQUE HAS THE ADVANTAGES OF EXCELLENT TEMPORAL RESOLUTION (PROJECTEDTO EXCEED 1 MHZ), SMALL SIZE AND PHYSICAL ROBUSTNESS, ISOLATION FROM APPLIED ACCELERATIONS, EXCELLENT SENSITIVITY AND DYNAMIC RANGE, AND IMMUNITY FROM EMI (ELETRO-MAGNETIC INTERFERENCE). DIFFERENT PROPOSED DESIGN CONFIGURATIONS PERMIT READOUT VIA OPTICAL FIBER, SHIELDED ELECTRICAL CABLE, OR REMOTE READOUT USING A LOW POWER HENE LASER BEAM.
