Vehicle equipment required:Check one or both:
Major water samplers
Large capacity slurp samplers
Small capacity slurp samplers
Bio collection boxes
Push corers
Scoop nets
High temperature probe
Low temperature probe
Heat flow probe
Magnetometer
Portable CTD
Digital Still Camera
Search Sonar
Profiling Sonar
Rock Drill (Jason only)
Video Duplication (Jason)
Elevators
    Other vehicle-related equipment (list):
    Science equipment to be installed on vehicle:
    Electronic equipment used in the ALVIN personnel sphere:
    Other comments and information:
Deep Water Mooring deployment (at start of test) and retrieval (at end of test) requires ship's master, crane operator, and deck hands to perform.
NRL Scatter VLA and Bottom VLA projects require ship crane (trawl and/or cargo crane) operator and deck crew assistance for deployment/retrieval of scientific equipment over the side.
CSS project requires assistance with location of equipment in deck "well" and transducer well (ADCP).
ITC project needs trawl crane operator support while deploying towed array.
Science team needs ship support to deploy (at start) and retrieve (once at end) Datawell Wave Rider Buoy. Also hydro boom support for other environmental characterization deployments/characterizations.
Each project is providing requirements to WHOI.
