Acrobat Tow System


 

The Acrobat Tow System is a submersible towed vehicle to carry a suite of oceanographic and environmental instrumentation. The AcrobatAcrobat is computer controlled to fly at varying or constant depths for profiling environmental conditions in the vertical and horizontal planes.  All instruments carried by the Acrobat are integrated through a custom MatLab program that displays real time data with respect to position and simultaneously stores the geo-referenced data analysis.
