Abstract:

A comparative study of the drag of shapes proposed for buoy hulls, a life test at sea of an unattended electric power system, a study of antennas for long-distance ionospheric telemetry from buoys, and a study into the methods and equipment available to give an oceanographic buoy the data capability required were conducted. Each buoy should have a capability of accepting 100 channels of data, of telemetering these data 4 times each 24 hours over distances as great as 2000 miles on command from shore, and of storing the data in the buoy for its design station endurance of one year.
