Akoostix Inc. provided data processing, analysis, and sea-trial support for transmission lossTL measurement experiments performed during Canadian Forces Auxiliary Vessel CFAV Quest cruises Q316 and Q325. An overview of these experiments, along with detail describing the initial processing and analysis are contained in the related analysis contract reports 1,2. The Software Tools for Analysis and Research STAR software package, used for the processing and analysis of the TL data, are under continuous, iterative development where newer software releases may cause or reveal errors in processing scripts originally tested using a previous version of the software. This fixed-price contract was required to update the Q316 and W325 TL-data-analysis scripts to work correctly with the current version of STAR. This work included investigating and resolving software defects revealed during the re-analysis. The STAR Analysis Tools Subversion repository Trunk revision 11105 contains the software updates, which will be provided in the next STAR software release Version 6.6.12.
