The project is a technically challenging investigation of sonar, ultrasound, and pressure based sensor technologies suitable for use when submerged in aggressive and corrosive environments. Tanks that hold liquid waste can containing a significant proportion of solids, both in suspension and as sediment, and monitoring the relative proportion of these represents a major technical and environmental challenge.

The project will involve designing, protyping and testing promising sensor technologies and their ancillary power supply and signal conditioning systems. The proposed project is being part funded by Tekelek Group, a multinational SME, based in Shannon and the Irish Research Council.

16,000 p.a. plus fees of € 5,750 for 4 years.
