Abstract : The patent describes a system for remotely monitoring and maintaining a predetermined depth of an underwater instrumentation package. A signal proportional to depth is converted into pulses capable of being counted. The number of pulses counted within a given time period is a direct indication of the depth and is visually displayed on a digital readout device. An automatic control signal can also be generated by comparing the digital depth signal with a preset signal.
