Pagination or Media Count:
A tow cable for measuring temperature in a water column comprising an optical fiber core, an electrically conducting polymer jacket concentrically superimposed over the cable core and a temperature sensor embedded in the electrically conducting polymer jacket. The superior heat transfer characteristics of the electrically conducting polymers allow the heat sensors to be embedded directly into the insulating polymer jacket.
