A variable buoyancy vehicle capable of profiling from the airsea interface to depths of 1000 meters has been built and tested. The integral data acquisition package utilized in performance evaluation of the profiler can be easily interfaced to a variety of ocean parameter sensors. Because of its ability to penetrate the airsea interface, this profiler can be used as a submersible telemetry link between subsurface and bottom mounted sensors and ship or land based data processing facilities.
