Take a look at DBD pump from end of mission, at +-260 there might have been a hint of sliding.

The bear is in the igloo.
Recovered by Williams/Noyes/Enright on R/V Sea Dance.
Some goosenecks barnacles and surface slime, but otherwise relatively clean!

Going for recovery today. Strong currents to SW -- going back to 900 m dives, single yos for another segment.

Weather not looking great for pickup until later next week.
Set goto to ping-pong at Hydrostation (water depth > 3000 m) for a few days

Created by: rcurry @ 2016-05-18 16:34:13Informational

Turning science sensors off (in sample##.ma files)
Increasing pump throw to full to speed up a bit. Aiming for recovery on Saturday a.m. near shore

Created by: rcurry @ 2016-05-05 16:40:43Informational

50+ kt gusts forecast for next 24-30 hours. Went to storm mode: CTRL-R wait 1 (gets gps, issues ctrl-w, and resumes)

double yos to 950, 8 hour no comms

Created by: dkaragon @ 2016-05-02 19:00:52Informational

Added m_battery_inst to SBDlist.dat
Changed u_dbd_sensor_list_xmit_control to 2

18 Apr: 2nd MOCNESS tow canceled by rough weather. Anna turned back toward station keeping site, 950 m dives, double yos. Wrong waypts file sent to glider (12km BATS box) and went unnoticed for a day.
20 Apr: corrected goto file
Dive / climb speeds equal ~16.5 cm/s
Pump throw -190 / + 230

Another AE/MOCNESS tow tonight. Anna sent NW to intersect anticipated ship track and heading during net tow.

Created by: rcurry @ 2016-04-18 04:39:20Informational

Transect ~10 km WNW out and back completed. Back to station keeping, double yos, sci sensors sampling dives only.

Created by: rcurry @ 2016-04-17 05:57:53Informational

Coordinating with Atlantic Explorer to follow in wake of ship during MOCNESS tow. single yos, shallower dives until a course / speed / time are determined.

26 * 30 = 780
780 * [.97 (shelf life) + .95 (end of life) + .95 (early drop off)] = 682 AH

Created by: rcurry @ 2016-04-10 06:28:32Informational

All science sensors sampling full time dives and climbs. Boosted pump throw to 230 / -190

Created by: rcurry @ 2016-04-06 09:03:08Informational

Changed yo20.ma to add buoyancy to climbs. File triggered a transfer problem (endless loop). Anna at surface for 40+ mins before I noticed.
Used zcancel to escape -> glider hung up iridium.

Removed 12 cc from pump throw on dives to equalize dn/up speeds

2nd underwater reset

loadmission anna.mi

resequenced

Created by: rcurry @ 2016-02-20 07:14:14Informational

2/16: Changed waypoints to 0.5 km box (evaluate station keeping ability)

2/20: Changed all sci sensor duty cycles to sample every dive (instead of alternate yos)

Completing the trifecta saved additional 14%

u_science_low_power_mode 0 (enabled)
u_alt_min_depth 1100

Created by: dkaragon @ 2016-01-06 09:56:20Informational

Low power mode effectively running 50% of the time (upcasts) with science low power disabled.

This saved about 4-5% power.

Dives not in low power due to altimeter. 7.16 appears to suffer from u_alt_min_depth needing to be set, -1 in yo file does not enable LP mode.

Software Version 7.16

Created by: dkaragon @ 2016-01-05 13:54:57Informational

Changed u_reqd_depth_at_surface to 4.5 m (pressure sensors look good)

Changed to low power mode, 30 sec.

Created by: rcurry @ 2015-12-21 10:07:07Informational

Reduced pump throw to +200 / -190 to save power and equalize dive/climb speeds

Created by: rcurry @ 2015-12-19 07:11:10Informational

Changed sci sensors to sample every other yo

Created by: rcurry @ 2015-12-17 08:58:47Informational

Reduced size of tbdlist

Created by: dkaragon @ 2015-12-15 12:26:00Informational

(since deployment) x_fin_deadband doubled to .04 to prevent surface OOD fin overuse

Created by: rcurry @ 2015-12-15 11:52:51Informational

Set to 950 m dives, double yos, 8 hours for no_comms
