Extension Cables for MARS
Project Manager and Lead Engineer: Jon Erickson
A universal constant in nearly all plans for use of deep-sea observatories is the fact that investigators are quite certain that they will need extension cables to position instruments some distance from observatory junction boxes. In 2008, cables will be ordered based on design work completed in 2007. They will be assembled with connectors and science instrument interface modules (SIIM) and tested prior to deployment in the ocean.
