FR 09/89

R. Edwards & D. Edwards (CSIRO) Cruise FR 09/89 was undertaken to test the development of the EZ Net System in its new configuration using in-house developed computer control and data logging. The system was initially tested in shallow water in Storm Bay and then in deeper water off Maria Island, Tasmania. Ten EZ Net deployments were conducted.
FR 08B/86

T. McDougall (CSIRO) Cruise FR 08B/86 was undertaken to test the microfish pressure vessel and stainless-steel SDL pressure cast for water-tightness and deployment of 'Bunyip' (Seasoar vehicle and Microfish vehicle together) in deep water off Maria Island, Hobart. Microfish pressure testing was successful, but the lowering of the SDL pressure vessel proved that it had a tiny leak. The communication of data and commands between the ship and both fish operated successfully (although with intermittent crashes!) and spectra of the accelerometers in the microfish collected, this being a major objective of the cruise.
FR 06B/86

F.B. Griffiths (CSIRO) Franklin cruise FR 06B/86 was a gear testing cruise for the EZ net and the programmable water sampler (PWS) in waters off the southeast coast of Tasmania. Cruise objectives were to stream, recover and tension the new CTD wire, to gain experience in deploying and recovering the EZ net and the PWS and learn how to operate the EZ net.
FR 02/85

R. Edwards, A. Papij, F. Boland, A. McEwan & J. Church (CSIRO) Cruise FR 02/85 was undertaken to test equipment, systems and the ship in a variety of scenarios prior to undertaking projects for the National Facility.
FR 01/85

R. Edwards (CSIRO) Cruise FR 01/85 was the maiden voyage and delivery cruise.
