Abstract : The manual describes the procedures used by the Coast Guard Oceanographic Unit (CGOU) to calibrate several Model 9040 STD systems, manufactured by Plessey Environmental Systems, currently in use within the Coast Guard. These calibration procedures are a composite of those supplied by Plessey under USCG Contract No. DOT-CG-02513A and those established by CGOU during the early stages after calibration equipment procurement. It must be pointed out that many calibration adjustments delineated herein are approximations and that further trial-and-error adjustments may be necessary.
