EOM Test Buoy Deployment
The Electro-Optical-Mechanical (EOM) test buoy was deployed in January, 2010 on a mooring in 152 meters of water on the continental shelf break south of Woods Hole. The test mooring was designed to evaluate the performance of EOM stretch hoses and the first application of a high speed satellite telemetry system, the Inmarsat based FleetBroadband 250, on a small moored platform. ()
