Instrumented Platform Interface Assembly

The ROV Jason breaches the oceans surface latched into an instrumented Platform Interface Assembly that has been installed for a year on a Shallow Profiler Mooring at the base of Axial Seamount. Connected to the submarine cable, the instruments have been sending sending data live back to shore since summer 2015 from 600 ft beneath the oceans' surface. Credit: M.
