Abstract:

The long term goal is development and utilization of a bottom stationed autonomous ocean profiler. The system is capable of bi-directional satellite communication via the ORBCOMM system, is user programmable and can store andor transmit acquired data in near real-time. Deployment of large numbers of BSOP systems, each equipped with a highly capable sensor suite, can be used to synoptically observe marine environments with very low initial capital investment and even lower operations costs.
