2 configurations for seabed/surface communications:
“Exploring and Sampling” configuration
Thanks to a fibre-optic link to the surface, a depressor (clump weight) decouples the vessel and the submersible, and a special system for managing the tether compensates for the surface vessel’s lack of dynamic positioning.
This device comprises:
The dynamic management of the two-part tether compensates for the movements of the support vessel in a radius of 300 m around the device’s position.
