Full text not available from this repository.


A proposal for a buoy station for AUV refuel is described and depicted. The buoy is to be funded and manufactured before July 2010, when it is to see service in the Azores as part of FREESUBNET week, a public outreach activity of EC contract number MCRTN-036186. The design calls for a low-maintenance permanent installation. The buoy will be accessible to the public upon prior written permission. A preliminary bill of materials is listed, as well as shipboard requirements and the like.
