Adaptive profiling uses inductive telemetry and a surface package to communicate with profiler firmware during the deployment The user can then program a new schedule which is transferred to the profiler during the next inductive telemetry session. Adaptive sampling provides a command line interface
and a set of commands to trigger pumping and change parameters during a deployment.
Adaptive profiling capabilities are being tested by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and will be available for general release in late 2011. Adaptive sampling is currently available. Adaptive options require the latest product firmware versions.
