Abstract : The transducer instrumentation system portion of the surface wave system is described. An accelerometer is vertically stabilized by a gyro. This gyro also drives potentiometers which provide pitch and roll outputs. Heading is obtained by a gyro-stabilized saturable inductor magnetometer system. Where a shipborne digital data processor is available, a proposed instrumentation system is outlined. (Author)
