An unmanned oceanographic data collection station is considered. This report covers in detail the accomplish ments to date during Phase I. Specifically, the following are dealt with a Evaluation of potential sensor power sources batteries b evaluation of potentially useful pressure transducers. c analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of digital versus frequency transmission modes for sensor-to-buoy data link d development of and potential use of an inductively coupled clamp-on sensor technique e techniques for abatement of biological growth fouling on sensitive sensor surfaces and f selection of the parameters for the sensor-to-buoy data link.
