Bathythermograph SIPPICAN MK 12

An eXpendable BathyThermograph probe is composed of a small projectile with a lead-weighted nose cap and plastic case containing a reel of thin copper wire.

The probe is placed in a launcher to be deployed at sea.

As the probe drops down through the water column, the reel of wire unwinds and transmits the measurement taken by a themistor to a PC type computer equipped with an MK 12 card.

The PC program provides real-time monitoring of the measurement T=f(P) and then records the curve and formats the file to be used by CARAÏBES software.
