Sea Sciences Acrobat
The Acrobat is a very light, computer controlled vehicle designed to be towed behind
small, powered boats operating in shallow water. The AcrobatTM is capable of carrying
a large variety of research instruments providing real-time data to a computer on the
boat. A typical integrated system is shown in the AcrobatTMsystem pdf file. You need
the free Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 to view and print these files.
The AcrobatTM provides 5 (five) standard underwater profiles: constant depth, constant
altitude above the bottom, constant undulation between two depths, adapting undulation
between a set depth and varying bottom, and maximum number of undulations between
two survey positions.
Test run by Sea Science Inc. of the Acrobat System.
