Abstract:

A family of oceanographic instrument systems that descend freely to the ocean floor later to return to the surface are now in use. Vital to the free vehicle instrument system is a reliable and accurate programmable anchor release device. A release device capable of being easily programmed in one hour increments to a total of 1000 hours is described including results of test and field evaluation.
