McLane - Model MMP - Moored Profiler
The McLane Moored Profiler (MMP) autonomously profiles the water column along a fixed tether while carrying a selection of oceanographic sensors. Profiling depth, time intervals and pressure stops are user-defined, and profiling patterns can span specific seasons or timeframes. An optional underwater inductive modem provides real-time communication between the MMP and a surface buoy or seabed node. We offer two MMP models: the standard and extended version. The extended MMP provides 50% more battery capacity and is 12.7cm longer than the standard MMP.
