Abstract:

An air-powered hauling machine and reeling device for use at sea with large electrical cable systems such as hydrophone arrays is described. The system may be used to haul cables from 0.3 to 2.0 inch diameter. Hauling tensions up to 980 lbs. and speeds up to 430 ftmin. are provided. The principal advantage of the system is that it does not cause the cable to bend while under tension. Reeling is accomplished under only sufficient tension to cause the cable to conform to the reel.
