Abstract : An automatic environmental-data logging and computing system installed on board SACLANTCEN's research vessel is described. The initial specifications and the basic problems encountered in changing from a conventional automatic to a computerized system are discussed. The features of the computer at the heart of the whole system are examined. Despite its limitations the system has proved to be an efficient means of real-time environmental-data acquisition. Specific items of the system are described in other memoranda of the series. (Author)
