The Advisory Committee on Continental Shelf Research of the Royal Norwegian Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (NTNF) has announced development by the Christian Michelsen Institute, Department of Applied Physics, of a current meter of high accuracy and stability. The announcement was made in the NTNF's progress report presented at the ‘Oceanology International 75’ conference held March 17–21, 1975, at Brighton, England.

The current meter measures two orthogonal current vectors in the range 0–2.5 mm/s with a bandwidth of less than 15 Hz. Several prototypes have been built.
