Abstract
Leveraging on Agiltron"s extensive experience in fiber sensor development, we propose to develop a customized sensing system with the ability to measure fuel quantity in a collapsible tank. Based primarily on mature technologies and commercially available components, the proposed sensor system is simple in construction and ready to be implemented. We successfully demonstrated the sensitivity and repeatability of a small-scale sensor in Phase I. For demonstration and evaluation in Phase II, a full-scale sensing mat, including hardware and software meeting all specifications, will be built for a 10,000-gallon fuel tank.
