Paper Abstract

The NEMO (NEutrino Mediterranean Observatory) collaboration is conducting an intense activity to develop technical solutions for the deployment of km3 scale neutrino detector in the Mediterranean Sea. The study of underwater networks of electro optical cables and connectors, mechanical layout and data transmission, is conducted together with leading companies in the field of submarine operations. The collaboration has also selected and characterised an optimal marine site in the region of Capo Passero at 3300 m depth, near the Sicilian Coasts. In addition, during year 2001, the collaboration has equipped a Test Site facility 28 km offshore the town of Catania. The facility will be fundamental for prototyping mechanical structures and data transmission systems.
