Original versionThis report is not to be quoted without prior consultation with the General Secretary.
The paper describes a general-system for design of oceanographic instruments.. The system uses a standard mechanical housing and a v~riety of compatible electronic units which can be plugged into the hausing in a few seconds. Data are recorded on solid state memories and transfered to different readout devices via optocoupling through the sealed instrument to p. By re ad ing da ta directly in to a microproce s sor, process ed data may be presented in the field within minutes. Details of the system are presented in the Poster Session.
