Title of the Innovation: WIRELESS EXPANDABLE BATHYTHERMOGRAPH CONDUCTIVITY TEMPERATURE AND DEPTH PROFILE SYSTEM (WXCTD)
Brief About Innovation
Wireless Expandable Bathythermograph Conductivity Temperature and Depth Profile System (WXCTD) is a temperature probe that is dropped into the ocean from a ship, either by hand or using an automatic launching system. In this convention method, the temperature profiles are recorded as the probe descends at a known speed about the upper layer (500m) of the ocean and it uses wire ropes for ascending and descending operation of the system.
Embedding all the necessary requirements, an expendable conductivity, temperature and depth system is developed for oceanography measurements. It can be freely dropped by hand from any ships without environmental interventions also and data is collected, transferred using wireless communication technology. The data can be collected either in descending or ascending operation which is being implemented using positive and negative buoyancy methodology. The WXCTD is a system used to measure and store the CTD data in real time upon surfacing in Ocean
