Abstract:

The long-term goals of this ONR Small Business Innovation Research SBIR Program Phase I and Phase II started August 2005 effort are to develop a Surf Zone SZ bottom drifter measurement system that is relatively invulnerable to effects of breaking waves and that utilizes near bottom currents to provide drifter locomotion without using its own power as well as to transition the technology to support nearshore research, including model validations, and SZ naval operations. Several drifters deployed in a SZ would form a mobile SZ measurement and mapping system.
