Paper Abstract

A towed deep ocean photographic system in continuous use and development at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory has produced well over 100,000 bottom photographs. Details of this system, including the arrangement of lights and cameras, the use of longer ranged sensors to regulate camera operation, and the shipboard processing techniques, are described. Some proposed future improvements in the system are also presented.
