Recovered 7 am EST 11/24 by UDEL team out of Ocean City, MD.

Glider heavily fouled, mostly fuzzies some goosenecks.

Optics on every other yo, CC off again to get onshore for servicing.

CC turned on (close to shore)

Fin abort was fin stuck hardover at -18.6 coming up from first yo. Didn't change fin limits.

Ran 30 min diagnostic mission (MBD) ud_476-2015-321-0-16.mbd

Seems to be flying OK, not sure why trouble navigating.

Created by: dkaragon @ 2015-11-17 19:59:13Informational

Re-sequenced mission to see if navigational slow downs are fixed.

Glider started calling TWR at 508, problem with their datahost lead glider to being 'stuck' at connection. Finally called Rutgers after 10 hours or so of contacting TWR.

Back on 2 hour missions and regular fish-finding.

Some altimeter ground truth segments (sampling)

Abort was bad goto.

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-10-22 12:12:45Informational

Visited, cleaned, and on its way, 2 hour missions. Not changing any fin settings, but Breece has pictures. Possible barnacle interference...

Created by: dkaragon @ 2015-10-20 22:17:08Informational

Aborts have been for digifin. 2nd abort 2:41 EST 10/20 stayed out of service causing BEH errors when transferring data.

Fin was reported at recent surfacing as -.43 rad

x_fin_max was .45, lowered it to .32 assuming hardover was the problem.

MLG from 2nd fin abort was 200 KB same as MBD, worth downloading later

Tide must be coming in, brief intermediate offshore waypoint to stay out of shipping lanes.

OTIS II was recovered, cleaned, and redeployed on 10/7/2015. Had trouble w/ external VMT, so removed and added wingrail weights. Flight mechanics looked good, but over the last 24 hours, OTIS II has been retasked to search for the Blue Hen. It has heard from it several times; we are currently heading towards last known argos position.

Created by: dkaragon @ 2015-10-06 09:54:36Informational

Changed yo top inflection from 5 to 4.5 to try to get a bit more flight column since it shallow time.

Changed u_pitch_max_delta_battpos from .2 to .15, it might not do much but to try to ease the overpitching on OTIS. (causing some altimeter noise and rapid yo's)

CC back on for overnight

Onshore waypoint, no current correction until the currents relax.

Created by: dkaragon @ 2015-10-03 08:59:11Informational

Current correction ON

(back to fighting currents)

u_use_current_correction 0; tired of flying against the strong tail current

Gliders are breaching (getting gps signal). Changing climb-to to 5 m to try and keep them underwater in high seas (significant wave height 17 ft at Delaware buoy).

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-10-02 11:27:56Informational

Changing dive-to from 27 to 25 m to avoid overdepth aborts.

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-10-02 09:24:15Informational

OTIS II still making a bit better headway than RU28 (heavier glider), so adding southern waypoint to bring it in closer to RU28

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-10-01 12:41:06Informational

Already losing ground to strong NE currents, so setting the wpt east. Leaving yo to full depth and 2 hour surfacings.

OTIS II, being the heavier glider, is flying north a bit faster than RU28, so I'm backtracking it a bit to get them closer. Mid waypoint added to the goto.

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-09-29 14:38:53Informational

Retasked to a midpoint, then off to the NE with RU28 to weather the approaching storm. Saw some odd behavior when attempting to transfer files:

Error from wcs(00430243.TBD)


SCI: Sent 0 file(s):

SCI: FAILURE xmit_to_host(): results=1
1023784 65 Freewave console restored
REVERTING FROM SCIENCE COMMAND MODE
SCIENCE COMMAND MODE TERMINATED because:
Science Program QUIT (cts lowered)

Tried again to transfer .tbd and .vem files; no problem.

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-09-28 16:23:17Informational

Changing waypoint to inshore DEP waypoint; matching up to fly w/ RU28.

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-09-22 16:52:25Informational

Ctrl-F from the yo10.ma change reset the goto_l10.ma, so glider is heading back to initial (0) wpt. Changing back at this surfacing.

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-09-22 14:01:12Informational

Changing climb-to back to 3 m; still breaching occasionally.

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-09-21 15:38:47Informational

Changed climb-to from 2 to 2.5 m, as we were breaching:

http://marine.rutgers.edu/~haldeman/glider_plot/ud_476/ud_476-459/ud_476_2015_259_6_83_sbd_heading.png

Changed u_reqd_depth_at_surface from 4.0 to 2.0.

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-09-21 09:15:10Informational

Changed dive-to from 5 m to 3, and changed climb-to from 3 m to 2 m to increase the water column being sampled. M. Oliver requested science data closer to surface, so may be adjusting further.

Created by: haldeman @ 2015-09-17 15:56:52Informational

Adjusted and loaded RU28.mi (should have renamed) - altimeter settings. 7 m limit, filter is OFF.

Deployed this morning off Belmar (Shark River) by Nicole C. and Nicole W. off NJDEP vessel.
