Abstract:

The overall objective of this effort is to develop an inherently scalable solution for determining optical properties important for surfzone mine-countermeasures. For Phase I of the project, the objective was to demonstrate the feasibility of our approach for measuring multi-spectral beam attenuation with a compact, inexpensive sensor. The key innovation is making a good quality measurement at low cost. Our objectives for Phase II include fabrication of complete Surfzone Water Attenuation Node SWAN systems and testing multiple networked nodes in surf zone environments.
