How-to Load SVP from HydrOffice Sound Speed Manager
The Sound Speed Manager is software to bridge the gap from ocean sampling equipment to QINSy.
It has been developed by HydrOffice, NH, USA - see the following paragraph:
"HydrOffice is a research development environment for ocean mapping.
Its aim is to provide a collection of hydro-packages to deal with specific issues in such a field, speeding up both algorithms testing and research-2-operation.
This package provides functionalities to manage sound speed profiles.
The package is jointly developed by NOAA OCS and UNH CCOM.
HydrOffice's Sound Speed Manager from CCOM/UNH and NOAA is freely available.
The how-to description below was copied from their manual.
QINSy accepts the same SVP transmission protocol as SIS (Kongsberg), but a method to verify reception of the cast is not currently known thus the user should confirm reception in the acquisition system.
Configure the new system as shown above.
Choose the same port number that the SSP package will be sending casts to (this is configured in the __config__.db file).
Return to the Console and press the Online button.
The Controller will now be started.
