RDP supports university's submarine challenge

RDP Electronics and MTS are providing magnetostrictive displacement transducers for Bath University's entry in the inaugural European International Submarine Races. The first time the event has been staged outside the USA, teams are challenged to build and race human-powered submarines which will test the engineering expertise and stamina of enterprising university students from three continents.

They will compete at Gosport, Hampshire using QinetiQ's Ocean Basin, the largest freshwater tank in Europe. Teams from Canada, France, Oman, UK, and USA will race their submarines flooded, piloted and pedalled by a scuba diver.

The transducers donated by RDP Electronics and MTS utilise a magnetostrictive principle that permits absolute, contact free position measurement combining various magneto-mechanical effects with precise speed measurement of a sound pulse in a wave guide.
