Optode errors caused an abort. We disabled the optode and will continue the mission without it.

A follow up to the previous post. The optode was shut off on 4-Apr around 1:00 pm localtime. During this time there was a mission restart. While we were shutting off the optode the glider aborted mission due to a MS_NOINPUT because it wasn't getting values from the depth sensor. This seemed to be a one time event and after a mission restart the glider was working properly.

During the segment from 1:00 am and 7:00 am (localtime) on 4-Apr there is missing science data. This had something to do with the optode and the science computer not interacting properlly which issued lots of oddities and a warning which took the science computer out of commision for this segment. Taking the optode out of service seemed to have solved this problem.

I took the first waypoint out of the waypoint list so it wouldn't try to fight the current trying to get to it.

We got a GPS parse and publish warning in the last segment (2:54 pm local time, 10-Apr-2014). Also, I updated the waypoints. Earlier in the mission the Scotian current pushed the glider off of its path which increased the distance it needs to travel. To account for this the gliders waypoints were set a bit closer to shore to conserve battery power.

Updated the mission waypoints at 2:30 pm (AST) to fly a triangle pattern over the weekend.
