Pagination or Media Count:
This report describes a bulk-data recorder based on the integration of a 14-inch streaming magnetic tape drive with interface circuitry to the Serial ASCII Instrumentation Loop SAIL concept. The development capitalizes on newly implemented industry standards for electronic interfacing to the tape drive and standards for data formatting on the tape. As the capability of this recording media becomes more apparent to the user, it should help resolve some of the issues dealing with methods and recording media for effectively moving digitized data in the marine community. Keywords include Digital Recording, Magnetic tape Recorder, Serial ASCII Instrumentation Loop, Instrumentation.
