deployment Wrinkle noticed in diaphragm 7/12/2012, not sure how long it was there.

dkaragon
deployment Glider recovered by Tom Wazniak out of Chincoteague inlet on their Parker.

Leaving glider on for possible run down test.

dkaragon
deployment Progress good in fighting currents, relaxing waypoint and slowing glider down to save power.

deployment Turned CC off last night, it has helped us make progress north but actually too much so changed the waypoint south to help fight the currents.

dkaragon
deployment Turned Science off

dkaragon
deployment Switched to SBD only transfers and backed off CTD sampling.

No point transferring TBD with pressure sensor problems also allowing us to lose to the currents. Lets see if we can place hold better.

dkaragon
deployment Empty mbdlist.dat doesnt affect CTD or overrun for that matter.

Put ctd on every other yo.

Temp data shows that it could just be the pressure sensor that is causing problems.

deployment Tried resequencing mission, restarting vehicle to no avail. Cycle overrun time at the surface is ~ 1 sec. We should add that sensor to the SBD.

CTD acting funny, showing:
279.26 sensor: sci_water_pressure = 0.233 bar
279.30 sensor: sci_water_cond = 4.0701 S/m
279.35 sensor: sci_water_temp = 16.1199 degC
283.34 76 sensor: m_pressure = 0.000546508389434922 bar
287.50 77 sensor: m_pressure = -0.00197583802331553 bar
288.06 sensor: sci_water_pressure = 0.233 bar
288.11 sensor: sci_water_cond = 4.07036 S/m
288.16 sensor: sci_water_temp = 16.1235 degC

At the surface. Resequenced on 2 hour missions, lets hope it clears?
2011-11-08 19:32 GMT
dkaragon
deployment CTD pressure sensor acting up, just like on ru16 NJDEP deployment. Removed from mission and re-sequenced to see if fixes by doing 'nothing'.
2011-10-27 18:30 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Sending shallow to start making progress again.
2011-10-26 20:14 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Sent to next waypoint.

dkaragon
deployment Glider too light for deep water. Trying 30 deg pitch.

deployment RU15 still getting very close to surface and occasionally breaching, set climb to depth to 4.25 in yo. Also trying to reduce science oddities, changed intersample time to 1 in sample01, 10, and 12.

deployment Changed tbdlist and mission (100_tn!w.mi) in the hopes on cutting down files sizes. On next surfacing the updated ma files will be sent over.
2011-10-18 19:34 GMT
haskins
deployment Completed 2 one-hour missions switched to 3hour timeout expired, 4hour no comms. Running 100_tn!w.mi

deployment Glider was deployed aboard the SeaTow Cape Hatteras by Dave Aragon. CS and ECE members were also present to run tests on MRI2.
