A system capable of measuring conductivity, temperature and pressure while under tow near the surface of the ocean a is being developed for the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office. The tow body is based on a remotely controlled active depressor and contains the CTD electronics and pressure, conductivity and fast and slow response temperature sensors. Up to two additional sets of pressure, conductivity and temperature sensor platforms can be fastened to the tow wire within 10 m of the tow body to provide additional measurements. The system is expected to become operational late 1980.
