This bespoke system was designed and built by TQC to provide the customer with the means to apply a tracer gas and the ability to log this gas concentration along with basic weather data information.

The specific application was for a submarine with the system used to monitor the flow characteristics within the vessel and how this was affected by the weather conditions outside when the submarine was at the surface and the hatch was open
