1 December 1991 Evaluation of commercial fiber optic sensors in a marine boiler room
Author Affiliations +
In the past few years the industrial community has developed a number of fiber optic engineering sensors which appear to serve the needs of the Navy and are available for installation aboard the naval ships. To assess the validity of this claim, Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) tasked the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) to purchase any fiber optic sensors offered commercially and evaluate them for naval use. Many sensors advertised needed years of development work before they would be ready for technical evaluation.
