Abstract : The vorticity Meter has been assembled, merged with ancillary sensors and operated from a new tow body. The system consists of three components: the vM sensor, support electronics and ancillary sensors. Some redesign had to be undertaken to overcome problems and unforeseen requirements, such as accepting additional sensors that were not earlier included.
