Scampi (150 words)
The Scampi, a towed fish for submarine photo and video shooting, is designed to operate between 5 and 10 m above the seabed and down to 6000 m depth.
The link of the Scampi to the support ship is made through a reinforced coaxial cable which transmits, in real time, the video images of the bottom, the commands of the operator and some data including the altitude of the equipment above the seabed.
The Scampi may be operated with its own core conducter cable (11.8 mm diameter), from the cable of the Sar deep towed side-scan sonar, or from any other cable with suitable electric and mechanical features.
