Sensor Fouling Compensation
Inventor: Samuel Laney
Serial #: PCT/US2013/057951
Applications: A proprietary sensor degradation assessment and correction system for use with marine sensors subject to biofouling. The technology may be used with any sensor involving an emitter, a detector, and a transmission element for directing a signal from the emitter to the detector.
Technology: Based on biofouling-induced changes in signal l strength relative to a reference signal, sensor output is adjusted to compensate for signal degradation. The system can also control anti-fouling by using antifouling systems such as scrubbers or UV lights.
