An inexpensive radar-responding relocation device for drifting oceanographic instruments
Hess, Frederick R.
MetadataShow full item record
The instrument described was designed to provide sufficient data to relocate a floating object at sea. It provides a line of bearing to the object from the tracking ship. Cost and power consumption were the major driving concerns. There is a minimum of microwave circuitry. The package is reproducible for under $2000.
