Conductivity, Temperature, Pressure, and (optional) Dissolved Oxygen (modular SBE 43F DO sensor).
Pressure-proof module allows for exchange of CTD (and DO sensor) without opening glider pressure hull.
Streamlined intake sail houses sensors while minimizing the impact on glider flight
External intake sail with integral T-C duct and anti-foulant device houses a thermistor and internal field conductivity cell. Intake sail allows measurements to be made outside of the vehicle’s boundary flow.
Flexible Sampling Options
Four sampling modes: Continuous (1 Hz), Fast Interval (5-14 sec intervals), Slow Interval (15-3600 sec intervals; CTD only), and Polled.
