The Devil Project Objectives

Software to operate in a Windows 2000 & XP environment

Multi-platform network or single PC operation

Suitable for Ship of Opportunity Program (SOOP) use (non-expert)

Climatology overlay and other QC

Use existing Sippican launcher

Support for MK9 hardware (interim legacy)

New hardware using USB interface to PC

Long term maintenance support

Devil XBT Project

Diff °C = XBT – CTD

Scale and Offset = linear correction to XBT depth in order to match CTD

Devil Plans

Trials and comparisons with CTD’s & Sippican MK12

Roll out of first 20 has begun and will complete in April 05

Plans for contract production of next 50 Devils underway

Devils to be sourced either from CSIRO or a commercial partner

Software support throughexisting CSIRO researchvessel infrastructure
