IN-SITU DETECTION OF OIL SLICKS UTILIZING DIFFERENTIAL EVAPORATION: PHASE II. SYSTEM DESIGN

This technical report describes the detailed design phase of a sensor system development program. The development is based upon a unique oil detection technique which utilizes fundamental differences in thermodynamic evaporation properties between liquids. The basic detection concept is defined, and the design parameters of the several subsystems required for implementation as a self-contained sensor system is described. Design features required to insure operability and survivability in a harbor or river marine environment are emphasized. Servicing requirements for replacement of expendable stores are also discussed.
