Abstract
A tape recording system was assembled to record scientific data on board a research vessel. Digital data equivalent to a single serial bit stream with a clock rate of 10.6 mHz were multiplexed onto six serial pulse-code-modulation channels of a Bell and Howell VR-3700B high-density digital tape recording system. Auxiliary data including compass reading, time, ship's speed, event count, trial number, and analog amplifier gain were recorded on a seventh digital channel of the tape recorder. An interface system between the data source and the tape recorder was developed for handling and formatting both recorded and reproduced data.
