Abstract:

Extensive laboratory-conducted field tests and semioperational use by military personnel have demonstrated the reliability and utility of various types of automatic weather and oceanographic telemetering equipments. It appears feasible to combine the best design features of the various types into a single equipment because of similarities in the principles of operation employed. All of the equipments would require some modification to adapt them to large network operation however, most of them could be so modified. Central-station equipment to adapt any of the various codes used to automated data processing is currently available. An analysis has been made of performance requirements of the units composing a large telemetering and data-handling system having a high degree of automation, an estimate of the support that would be required, and the expected system capability. For illustrative purposes, a hypothetical ocean-wide network in the North Pacific Ocean was developed as a model. The model network was composed of 60 buoys of a hybrid design embodying the best features of a number of existing environmental telemetering equipments. Author
