Abstract : The working subsystems of an oceanographic data acquisition system that has been developed for the Office of Naval Research as a general purpose scientific instrument are described. The functional operations of the buoy's telemetry and command system, data acquisition and control system and sensors are discussed, as well as the shore-based mobile data center. The functional operation of data center equipment, in conjunction with the buoy data and telemetry system, is discussed in detail. Shore-to-buoy commands and buoy-to-shore data transmissions are described. (Author)
