Abstract:

The document reports the results of an analytical design study and a prototype experimental program which investigated the characteristics and performance of a buoy system for the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office Hysurch Program. The buoy system serves as a reference station for a hyperbolic navigation system for coastal hydrographic survey. The work reported herein consisted of an analytical evaluation of several classes of buoy systems, a detailed design of a prototype system, an experimental program with a full scale prototype buoy system in two oceanic environments, and an evaluation of the operational characteristics of the prototype system.
