AbstractThe Naval Ocean Research and Development Activity (NORDA) has adapted the Loral Instrumentation Advanced Decommutation system (ADS 100) as a portable maintenance system for one of its remotely deployable buoy systems. This particular buoy system sends up to 128 channels of amplified sensor data to a centralized A/D for formatting and storage on a high density digital recorder. The resulting tapes contain serial PCM data in a format consistent with IRIG Standard 106-87. Predictable and correctable perturbations exist within the data due to the quadrature multiplexed telemetry system. The ADS 100 corrects for the perturbations of the telemetry system and provides the user with diagnostic tools to examine the stored data stream and determine the operational status of the buoy system prior to deployment.
