Functional Specifications

The OBSIP Oversight Committee has developed functional specifications for OBSIP instrumentation intended to guide the facility in future OBS development.  These functional specifications also provide visibility into the instrumentation requirements necessary to meet current and future science investigations to other groups including vendors, partner facilities, and users.

The functional specifications are forward looking and do not represent the current capabilities of the OBSIP fleet, but rather, the desired capabilitites.  Furthermore, these functional specifications are subject to change at any time.  Any feedback regarding their adequacy, or changes required, is welcomed - please contact the OBSIP Oversight Committee Chair. 

The functional specifications are divided into three instrument types - broadband, short period and short period long duration, and are accessible via the following links.
