Abstract : The purpose of this program was to develop a sensor capable of detecting metal particles of various sizes and/or metal in solution down to the level of 10 parts per million (ppm) weight concentration. The sensor was to be capable of detecting both magnetic and non-magnetic metals. With respect to possible application in airborne systems, the sensor was to have detection capability over the temperature range from ambient to 400F and was to be capable of withstanding vibratory environments.
