Abstract : Through summer 1994, SEAMAP has been successfully used in eight survey operations by NAVOCEANO totalling approximately 200 days of operation in the eastern North Atlantic Ocean and Norwegian Sea. Technical and scientific results of several of those programs have been described in papers and meeting proceedings abstracts included in the publications section at the end of this report. SEAMAP system development included design and fabrication of the following subsystems by HMRG: (1) Tow body; (2) Sonar transducers; (3) Launch/recovery system for operation from ships at sea; (4) Subsurface control and transceiver electronics; (5) Telemetry system for signal transmission to surface; (6) Topside computer-based digital control and acquisition system; (7) Digital control, acquisition and display software; (8) Various ancillary components to allow field operation; and (9) Hardware and software documentation for NAVOCEANO operation and maintenance.
