Abstract : This report covers the design, development, fabrication, and testing of an optically analog linear position transducer with a full-scale displacement of 6 inches and an equivalent resolution of twelve bits. The transducer is electrically passive and interfaces with the associated Electronic Interface Unit through fiber optics only. The EIU provides the necessary analog-to-digital conversion. The transducer was tested both functionally and environmentally. (Author)
