Abstract:

The Arctic Oceanographic Buoy AOB is a special type of sonobuoy designed for Arctic Operations. It is released from an aircraft, lands on the ice surface, penetrates through the ice and deploys a sensor to measures acoustic energy being transmitted below the ice. The acoustic data is transmitted to the Argos satellite for post transmission analysis. This report provides a brief technical description of the AOB and its potentially hazardous materials, plus recommended procedures for storage, handling, and operational use.
