OOI buoy on r/v connecticut

Test buoy deployed

The Electro-Optical-Mechanical (EOM) test buoy for the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI), stowed on the fantail of the R/V Connecticut, was deployed in January 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.
