Abstract : The principal objective of this program is to develop a fiber optic engineering sensor system (FOESS) including sensors, telemetry, and displays for applications such as damage control, system control (i.e., propulsion or steering) and intrusion defense systems for ship, aircraft and shore applications. The near term thrust of the program is to demonstrate a system capability (including telemetry) for the measurement of a multitude of physical parameters such as fluid flow, fluid pressure, mechanical strain, electromagnetic fields, temperature, air quality, specific gravity, and liquid level.
