Abstract : A general non-technical summation of the construction, operation and potential of the R/P FLIP. FLIP, i.e., FLoating Instrument Platform, is designed as a super-stable open-sea free-floating platform from which to conduct research in the field of physical oceanography - primarily underwater acoustics to a scale heretofore impossible due to background noise and ship movement.
