ADCP's

Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) System:

The vessel's RD Instruments ADCP package includes 3 vessel mounted RDI transducers (1200, 300, and 75 kHz frequencies). Each transducer/deck unit is controlled by a dedicated PC and is interfaced with both the ship's Sperry gyrocompass, TSS-MRU roll-heave-pitch sensor, and a Trimble GPS with a Micronet Receiver Station. The systems use RDI's control and display software: VMDAS and WinADCP.
