Abstract:

A cable-pack winding and payout system is disclosed that will provide a torque-free cable payout from a wound cable pack, such as are found in ocean-deployed buoy packages. Dual feed spools are arranged so that the two halves of the cable can be simultaneously wound onto a single main spool. At time of payout, the pack is inertly payed out from the center or both ends and the payed-out cable has no curls or twists therein.
