Abstract : This report describes a compensated temperature sensing device having a sensing element capable of surviving extreme operating environments while still being able to substantially instantaneously sense temperature changes. This is accomplished by incorporating within the device an auxilliary heat source which artifically heats the sensing gas within the sensing device. The amount of heat added to the device would be dependent upon the error in the sensed to actual temperature and the mass of the sensor which requires a change in temperature level.
