puck off, optode on downs, currents up

sbdlist.dat changed to reflect the above, every 3rd yo as well

3 hour missions, currents building

Results:
Couple bottom hits, discrepancy of 4 meters on altimeter and bottom. Glider did not look to slow down much, trying this for next iteration:

00180180.mlg

(might need to put altimeter data in SBD)

trying -150 cc on dives, AP pitch
climbs are full speed and battpos still

5 off bottom

Altimeter bottom sampling issues, going to play with. Set up SBD for tests

Created by: haldeman @ 2010-09-09 12:13:09Informational

Adjusted route to maximize sampling area w/ remaining battery capacity as per Josh. New goto should be picked up ~12:36

abort for iridium, turned script off and left

Created by: dkaragon @ 2010-09-07 11:57:47Informational

Switched to no igain heading control, offset of 3 degrees and 1.25 instant gain, see if we can speed her up a bit.

Transferred sbd\'s from critical missions today, copied and deleted old ones and from test missions.

Retasked to 140 deg offshore with correct waypoint list and -1 as next_waypoint

retasked to 97 meters or 6 off bottom to 5 meters from surface

pitch looks good, ballast looks good, altimeter hits could be better

see how we do tonight

Re-deployed by Chip Haldeman out of Barnegat
Bay.

Continuation of previous Sandy Hook, NJ to
Cape May, NJ NJDEP deployment.

Flaky altimeter performance on this glider.

Replaced stock altimeter with ru27\'s.

Determined RU16\'s altimeter is still not working properly. On 4/30/10 entire glider was sent to Webb to see if they could fix the altimeter. Altimeter for this glider has never worked properly.
