An Oceanographic Research Institute sent me these pictures over, but I'm not having much luck identifying them. What are they and where can I find the specs for these items.

They are called e-waste.
LOL - nah, too many useful parts... if you're that way inclined.

@gbtbtbt Seriously though, looking at the shape, its something that's assembled into a tubular case, maybe lowered down a drill shaft (see the 'core' nomenclature on the wiring loom) or maybe a hydrosonde, towed behind a ship.... which ties in with the Oceanographic Research. What's written on the partially hidden rear PCB in pic 1? Almost certainly these are limited run custom assemblies for a specific project....

Thank you for the help, as the following pictures are an Avnet MicroZed product line and a tsunami detection buoy. As of this time, I have not received much more information other than the confirmation of those two items. I couldn't have figured this out without the community's help and I thank those again for the assistance.

Happy Holidays.
