NAVAL OCEANOGRAPHIC OFFICE NSTL STATION MS
A major problem area confronting all oceanographic buoy systems is the electromechanical interface connecting the sensorstrain cable with the buoy electronics. The report documents the design criteria, sea test, and evaluation of a successful prototype umbilical link for a NOMAD Navy Oceanographic and Meteorologic Automatic Device buoy. The buoy was implanted in late August 1968, 7 miles east of Ocean City, Maryland, in 70 feet of water test duration was approximately 3 months. Author
