Abstract : A system for sensing, processing, and recording sound velocity, sea water temperature, wave heights, ambient light, date, time, transducer depth, and certain ship motions is described. The system is digital and is designed principally for use aboard submarines. The output is punched paper tape for computer entry and all variables are displayed and recorded in their absolute units. The system, in a slightly modified form, is now in use aboard the USS ARCHERFISH (AGSS-311). Examples of data and block diagrams of the system are given. (Author)
