Abstract:

A preliminary design for a new hydrographic survey and charting system is presented. The new design is characterized by the use of high-speed components and application of automation wherever practicable. The report represents a one-year study of hydrographic survey sensors, navigation, sounding vehicles, and hydrographic-chart production techniques as well as a study of coastal survey strategy. Detailed analyses are presented on all of the subsystems. Since a survey ship is required to carry and support these subsystems, a discussion of the design requirements for such a ship is included. The report concludes with a procurement schedule for a 1971 prototype. Author
