dkaragon
deployment Altimeter fix appears to be working well, no sampling since. At some point we need to 'calibrate' m_water_depth.
2012-09-19 20:09 GMT
dkaragon
deployment battpos pitch:
.3 D; -.11 C
2012-09-18 18:36 GMT
haldeman
deployment Changed climb to depth to 5 m instead of 3 and disabled file transfers in attempt to make progress offshore/south. May adjust waypoints accordingly to avoid shipping lanes/flying into head current.
2012-09-18 15:04 GMT
haldeman
deployment 2nd wpt changed to -7352.4150 4015.9710 trying to get glider offshore against currents out of the south. Satisfying radius changed to 250 m.
2012-09-17 20:04 GMT
haldeman
deployment Switched optics to every 4th yo to cut down on .tbd size/time at surface
2012-09-17 15:33 GMT
haldeman
deployment Adjusted 2nd waypoint to -73 56.5100 40 15.8580 to stop flying into head current and attempt to make progress offshore for duration of storm.

dkaragon
deployment Currents to the north, test was successfull inflecting to 3 m off bottom.

Next week we need to fact check the bottom, problem will be reported to TWR. We will call it m_water_depth issue internally, but the workaround appears to be working. All should be good!

dkaragon
deployment u_max_bottom_slope 1
2012-09-14 18:31 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Running test with m_altitude_rate set to -.2

This will test if bug in code for fly to m_water_depth if u_alt_filter_enabled is off.

deployment 20 deg down pitch, -200 cc

Inflecting 6 off bottom
2012-09-13 19:38 GMT
dkaragon
deployment We are currently flying optics on every other downcast.

We are sending back 4 sec data all around, every other yo: ctd+optode, every other downcast optics.

dkaragon
deployment Tina changed TBD back to 4 sec sampling every other.

Re-loaded altimeter settings.

Currently on 30 min mission for two segments then increasing to one hour.
