Paper Abstract

To overcome the hazards of electrical sensors in explosive environments, passive optical sensors using fiber-optic communication to a remote monitoring station are being seriously studied. Development of three passive optical sensors to measure liquid-level, pressure, and temperature in cryogenic propellant tanks is described. Characteristics together with results obtained from an experimental model incorporating those sensors and operating with liquid nitrogen as the test fluid are identified.
