Cable Termination Assembly

Cable Termination Assembly

A cable termination assembly (CTA) is removed from the cable drum that was just released from the Remotely Operated Cable Laying System (ROCLS) during the ROV ROPOS dive 1599. The CTA, held in ROPOS's manipulator, provides a termination/connection between wetmate connectors and extension cables. An RSN wetmate hybrid connector (RS03W3-PA) is shown in the background, still attached to an extension cable that is figure 8'ed on the front horns of the cable drum.
