USBL is used to geolocate the camera during the deployment, and ancillary instrumentation includes depth, temperature, salinity, height above seafloor, and platform pitch/roll. It is deployable to 3900m (although only 2500m before Sept 2021) The video camera systems are: 1. Primary HDSDI Video Stream: Hitachi KP-HD20a with Fujinon TF2.8DA-8; 2. Secondary H.264 Stream: GBO S1080 with LM6HC F1.8, 6mm Manual Iris; 3.
