Abstract:

An automatic environmental data-logging and computing system installed on board SACLANTCENs research vessel is described in a series of memoranda. This memorandum of the series concerns the specifications and operations of a software package that controls the low-speed sampling and storage of slowly-varying electrical analogue signals via an analogue-to-digital converter. It has been designed for Hewlett Packard 2116B mini-computers but may easily be modified for use on most general-purpose digital computers. Appendices provide specific instructions for the systems use with the WAVERIDER buoy, with data input devices that do not use analogue-to-digital converters, and with personally-written software for real-time on-line data processing.
