Abstract:

This report addresses progress on the Phase II Development of the Expendable Particle Sensor EPS over the time period of August through September 1992. A design review meeting was held at Sparton in early August of 1992. During this meeting it was obvious that XOTD development progress was not on schedule at Sparton. It was also obvious that Sparton had not accounted for a significant amount of engineering time on this project. The design review meeting can best be summarized by stating that Sparton has not performed well with regard to the development of the AXOTD or XOTD. Sparton has assured Sea Tech that these problems will be resolved in the future. Four technical problems were outlined during the design review meeting at Sparton 1 A decision needed to be made regarding the location of the scattering sensor in the XOTD. 2 A sea water switch needs to be designed for the dual battery supply used in the XOTD. 3 A temperature sensor needs to be designed for the XOTD. 4 A battery must be selected to power the AXOTD and XOTD.
