Abstract:

The ANBSQ and ANBQH-7 expendable bathythermograph SSXBT systems provide the means whereby a submariner can obtain information about the surrounding ocean. Because the systems are, of necessity, more complex than similar systems used aboard surface ships, the incidence of failure has been high. This report incorporates suggestions to improve system performance by providing insight into recognizing system failures and trace interpretation. Additional information is provided concerning frequency of observation, relationship to other onboard sensors, system calibration, use of the data with the Submarine Fleet Mission Program Library resident in the TEKTRONIX 4051 desktop calculator and trace disposition.
