Aandera oxygen optode - SN 1024
First generation G2 glider.
1000m depth rating.
Pitch battery was not fastened to the pitch motor. The battery shifted backwards in the glider and caused the glider to descend tail first.
Haldeman fixed the problem and the glider should be redeployed 3/21/2010.
COP Tickle issues. Email from John Dingess with workaround:
> It appears that the G-2 board is not reading the board revision junmpers,
> therefore is defaulting to the no cop tickle timeout, which is 6300 secs
> in masterdata.
> you need to include in your mission:
> behavior: abend
> b_arg: no_cop_tickle_percent(%) -1 #this will disable the
> reading of the board jumpers, just in case
> b_arg: no_cop_tickle_for(sec) 50400 # 14 hrs
> you can cbhange the device warning limits for the attitude sensor, also in
> your mission:
> at the head of the mission file (before behavior_abend)
> use attitude_rev 1 -1 20 10
> this will change the defaults as follows:
> attitude_rev 1 means use the device
> -1 means the glider will always attempt to put the device back into
> service (the default is 3 times)
> 20 is the allowable warnings per segment before an error is generated
> and the device is taken out of service (default is also 20)
> 10 is the allowable warnings per minute befor and error is generated
> and the device is taken out of service (default is 5)
> attached is a writeup on aborts and device limits....good reading when you
> have time
