AbstractAn accurate and reliable way of measuring wave properties is fundamental for proper evaluation of ship hull designs and tank tests where specific types of waves are generated. The repeatability of wave probe data is essential for evaluating test results. These important qualities are in question for the current systems. In this report I tested the effects of using thicker gauge wire on the IOT wave probes. The results are outlined within the body of the report and some conclusions are made from them. I also designed, prototyped and tested a new IOT wave probe signal conditioner. Also there were a couple of new ideas, which I developed that can be used for other projects and circuits. All of which are covered within this report.
