deployment Next surfacing will retask to 1 hour missions for remainder of night; recovery early tomorrow morning.

deployment 30 deg upcasts (water is getting light)
2013-06-23 14:42 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Glider aborted for low relative charge. This is based on TWR setting for lithium life:
f_coulomb_battery_capacity(amp-hrs) 720.0

We did not define in mission so it took 10% remaining = abort.

Changed upcast to 28 degrees to combat lighter waters.

Setting capacity to 750 AH and mission to 5% for abort. Downloaded MBD, voltages @ high load look OK.

Re-tasked back towards recovery location but we can change this for our last ~week.

deployment RE: Fin Abort

Multiple use +, and an exit reset did not put the fin back in service. Setting c_fin to 'stuck' m_fin did not help. Finally tried one last use + digifin and it worked. Similar symptoms seen in lab with 'stuck' digifin so could have been a single external incident. No problems since, will check oddities for fin since.

deployment Iridium outage 5/2 EST PM

Changed to battpos dives again
.3 in D, .1 in C

We were sampling bottom a bit, so trying to see if we can calm down the pitch response.

deployment Back to AP pitch, see if it is more aggressive on the angles to speed up the glider a bit.

2013-04-16 16:08 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Lack of detections and some 0 size .vem files lead us to bring the glider deeper to get below u_reqd_depth_at_surface of 2 m. Incidentally (not sure if coincidence) we got our first tag hits.

Continuing to make sure glider is below u_reqd_depth_at_surface for VEMCO reasons:

u_reqd_depth_at_surface = 1.5 m

dkaragon
deployment 1.5 hour missions.

Set u_hd_fin_ap_gain 1 from 1.25

Heading during the trouble segment last night was due to CC algorithm problem. Still not sure why the glider is calculating either currents or its speed wrong.

deployment 1 hour missions during the day.

deployment Glider Deployed by Matt Breece

Ballasted for 1023 @ 7C

Decided we were a little light so after first shallow mission we pulled glider and add two wing rail weights. (13.125 grams each in water)

Second shallow proved success currently on 45 minute missions.
