INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this section is to give you some of the theoretical background information needed for LBL calibration and MULBL setup The section is written for general operation and you might therefore find topics not relevant for your use of the system Note that file names, water depths, channel numbers, values in default parameters, interrogation interval, and other settings might be different in live operations than in the screen dumps in this section Note that the screen dumps in this training manual are taken with different APOS software versions and not necessarily fit the software you have on-board or in a standard APOS Trainer Special simulator and setting files must be installed on an APOS Trainer to get the same screen dumps as in this section

WHAT IS LBL CALIBRATION ?


Long base line calibration is to decide the local coordinate system of the transponders deployed for use in an LBL array
