Study on Deep Tow System – Part 2 Study on Motion and Motion Control of Full-scale System

The importance of deep ocean surveying and monitoring is increasing because of the change of situation of energy and oceanic resources. The authors propose a deep tow system which consists of a launcher and a towed vehicle to achieve high speed towing and good depth and motion control of the vehicle. In this research, motion simulations of a full-scale system were carried out. The influence of the towing cable's length, towing speed and the launcher's weight on the submersion depth of the towed vehicle, the influence of motions of the mother-ship on motions of the towed vehicle, the influence of the mother-ship's turning radius on the towed vehicle's drop and motion control performances of the towed vehicle are shown.
