Paper Abstract

This paper describes the successful utilization, of a closed-circuit underwater video system in a deep ocean engineering project to emplant an underwater acoustic source at a precise location on the ocean floor at a depth of 300 fathoms. The system, consisting of camera, lighting, pan and tilt unit, control unit, power supply, four monitors,. a video film recorder, 5000 ftof cable on a special cable reel, and a slip ring assembly, was used to position the acoustic source safely and properly. in its subsurface location. The video system monitored the descent of the acoustic device con tinuously so that the operation of touchdown and emplacement was under observation at all times. The system provides for periodic observation of the acoustic source and its structuri members at will during its period of intended usage.
