Bio-Optical Sensor Systems
Satlantic offers a complete line of integrated instruments developed for deployment on profiling float arrays to observe biogeochemical parameters at global scales. The BOSS is a flexible package that expands the sensor capability of profiling floats by providing multispectral radiometry, scattering, beam attenuation, chlorophyll, and CDOM measurements to complement the standard suite of parameters that include temperature, salinity and oxygen.

SatCon is a software utility for converting raw binary data, as logged by SatView, into readable ASCII text suitable for import by third party applications such as spreadsheets or databases. Data can be extracted in calibrated physical units or raw binary counts. SatCon can be operated interactively through a user friendly graphical interface, or in batch mode as a background process.
For minimum system requirements, installation instructions, and new features, please refer to the release notes in the SatCon User Manual.

Can the BOSS work as a stand alone system or integrated with a traditional CTD?
The BOSS was specifically designed for bolt-on integration with an Argo profiling float. As such, the design and telemetry interfaces are not set up for stand alone or real-time profiling.
