Apparatus is provided for simulating an ocean environment for sonobuoys which are being tested in a relatively calm body of water. A floating platform is towed through water to simulate a sea current, and a sonobouy being tested is attached by a cable to the floating platform. A drum, driven by a reversible motor, winds and unwinds the cable to simulate wave action while the floating platform is being towed. Author
