Abstract:

The Mark I Dubat furnished under Contract NObsr 93315 is an Expendable Bathythermometer incorporating both temperature and depth measurement transducers. The construction of the hull and instrument sub-assembly of the expendable unit is suited to standard machine shop production techniques. In its present form the Mark I Dubat is a developmental device which may be easily converted to low cost, high production manufacturing techniques. A Dubat Mark II version may be easily generated from the same basic redesign of the Mark I. The Mark II Dubat would not contain a pressure transducer depth would be estimated from time versus depth data taken with fully instrumented Mark I versions of the instrument. The accuracy of depth estimates with the Mark II would not be as good as the accuracy of depth measurements with the Mark I.
